travelling to India on OPT status


Is it safe to treavel with OPT status. I’m planning for a visit to India from DEC 6 - Jan 10 , im on my extension with 6 months left on the OPT status. I have my f1 valid till 2015 and my opt ends in jun 2014.

My qestion is if it safe to travel on this status, and what documents do i need to carry with me.


It is very much debated all over, some advise not to travel and some advise it is fine…Logically, it should be fine as long as you have a proper job offer at hand and you are carrying the documents with you. Read this document on Required documents for Travel on OPT
