I have been in US since my high school through my first university degree and now completed my masters
I have always renewed my Multiple Exit entry visa but after my first degree, I did not renew it. MY F-1 visa has always been valid and now I am on 3 years OPT. So I have been here legally all through.
I need to travel to Canada to renew my exit /entry visa so I can be traveling out.
1. Will this be a problem when I travel out of the country to renew my visa?
2. Do I need an immigration lawyer to do this?
There is no such thing as an "entry exit" visa. A visa is a document that allows one to be admitted to the U.S. If your visa is expired, you may need to get a new one to reenter the U.S. Perhaps you are asking about whether you are eligible for automatic visa revalidation.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
You will need a new visa to enter the US. I don't know what you mean by an entry/exit visa. If in doubt, consult privately with an immigration attorney.
