My bf’s grandparents are getting older and not doing that well, he’s a foreign national and on OPT after finishing his PhD recently. He’s torn between wanting to go see them (he hasn’t been home in over 7 years) as they kind of raised him. What are his options if he were to leave the country? Re-entering May be difficult. We heard traveling out of country on OPT is not recommended and his f1 visa stamp is also expired so he will need a new stamp. He’s currently working full time here on his OPT. Should he risk being able to live in America and go see his grand parents because he may not see them again by the time his visa statuses are cleared in next 3-4 years? It’s such a tough decision!

Best option is to book visa appointment and go visit the grandparents and return with new visa stamps
