My F1 is expired, but other documents are ok (I-20, I-94). I plan to come back to the US after a short trip to Canada using the AVR rule. Will I have any problems with getting a boarding pass on my way back?
My guess is that most airlines are unaware of the AVR process. I am not sure about the online check-in process though, if airlines can somehow check validity of the visa, I probably would get denied the boarding pass. I called Air Canada with the same question. They first said "no, you absolutely cannot get boarded with an expired visa". Then I explained the situation and the guy said "if you have a document, there should be no problem". It sounded like he does not really know what is going on during check-in.
