F1 Visa Extension Help
My situation is not very urgent, but I like to stay on top of things. Thanks in advance for your help, it is much appreciated.
My F1 visa expires on July 6 of 2011. However, I have an I-20 that permits me to stay in the United States until August 31st of 2012. The reason for this is that I came here as a master's student, but transferred to a PhD program. This is my second I-20.
I have plans to leave for India in May of 2011 and stay until end June 2011. Will it be necessary for me to apply for an F1 Visa extension? Technically I'll be back by July 6, but will it be problematic to get back without a renewed visa because there are only a few days remaining on the old visa? Again, as per the I20 I can stay legally here until August 2012. Is it difficult to renew the F1 visa? All this is almost a year from now but I'm getting quite stressed about the situation. I cannot certainly finish my degree by July 2011.
I humbly seek any information/advice anyone can provide on this. Thanks again for your time and attention.
