I am currently working on OPT. My F1 visa expired in Dec 2017 but my STEM OPT is valid until July 2019 with no extensions. I really want to visit Nepal but I'll need a visa extension in order to come back. Has anyone done this before? How risky is it? I have never heard anyone do it so I am very confused. Also, my employer is willing to provide necessary documentation to prove I will have a job when I come back etc.

Please help!!!!

If you've been maintaining your F1 status and are working where you're supposed to (i.e. in STEM field), you'll be fine. There's always some risk but I don't think you'll have any issues. My experience is slightly different - I went to Nepal while I was on OPT, but my F1 was still unexpired. Came back, worked for another 1.5 years (my F1 also expired during this year), started gradschool, went back home about a year later and entered US with a new/renewed F1.

You should be fine, just don't forget to get the signature on your current I-20 before you go to Nepal, make sure you have that letter from your employer, and carry all of your I-20s, EAD cards with you

EDIT: just saw your another thread from last year...says that  you have TPS you're saying you're on STEM OPT. If what you wrote there is true, it's going to complicate things.

Ignore the other thread. That was my friend using my account.

I am strictly working on OPT.

I'd suggest get AP first
