    My wife got approved H4 to F1 COS. She will be graduating in Dec 2014. She is applying for OPT very soon as well. When F1 OPT get started (and having Job), can she go back to India and will get F1 stamped ? she already had two F1 visa rejections, when she applied in India before coming to USA on H4. Please please help me on this.

    Personally, I wouldn't try it. If she gets stuck the best she could hope for is to return as an H4 and forfeit her OPT.

    Thanks Ron for reply.

    What if, she visits india after course completion, during OPT ?

    So what would be better option ?

    I think, only ways to get it solve are -

    Option 1: wait until she gets H1 from employer and then go to India

    what else you can think ?

    YOur response is most welcome. Thanks again

    The safest course is to wait until she gets an H approval.
