My STEM OPT is valid through January 2020.
My H1b got picked and had got an RFE. I need to respond to my RFE by September 23, 2018.
Below are my questions.
1) My marriage is arranged in December 2018 and I need to travel to India for the same on Dec 1.so even I don't have any update on my RFE by end of November, can I still travel to India in December on my OPT STEM extension card and return back to the USA.
2) If in case of my H1b is denied or revoked before December 1, 2018, can I still travel to India in December on my OPT STEM extension card and return back to the USA.
3) Can I respond to my RFE through consular processing? i.e., can I request in my RFE response that I would like to get my RFE case to evaluate via consular processing? I heard from a friend that using consular processing I can travel out of the USA for at least one year while my H1b application is still in processing. Does it applicable to my case.
Kindly let me know if there are any other options that I can exercise so that while my RFE is still under processing I can travel to India in December and return back to the USA by end of December.
