Please advise - my OPT expires on December 31, 2013 and I am planning to travel to India from December 2nd to December 17th, 2013. Is that advisable? Will I face a problem during re-entry? I am applying for an H1b cap exempt during this time but the petition will be mailed out only during mid-December which is why I thought of making the trip home.
Any thoughts or inputs would be greatly appreciated!
