I am currently on OPT working as a lecturer for a reputed university. My OPT is valid until August 16, 2017. My employer has filed Cap exempt H-1 B for me and it was approved today. My H1-B is valid from August 16, 2017.
I need to travel to India in the month of May. So I am planning to make an appointment for H1-B visa stamp in May. Since my H-1 B starts from August 16, 2017, Can I travel back to USA on Jun 24th on my OPT Status? I have a valid F-1 visa and I-20. Please let me know.
Your prompt response is greatly appreciated in this regard.
