Default Advice for flight back home/When IV season ends

When it is okay for IMGs to take the flight back home? Or when does the interview season ends and there will be no more invitations for interview?

That varies a lot. Interviews come till about two weeks from the deadline too (late February). It's up to you if you wish to stay or not.
I haven't had any luck since mid-November so I'm flying back home this weekend. I had three interviews and one prematch one (which I wasn't offered). All this wait and idleness gets to you (or it did to me at least).

Yesterday, while staying at the registration desk on the flight back home I received an IV from the program I was waitlisted at... canceled. .. Be caseous!

Strange question
I concentrated all my IVs (10 in total) in 4 weeks of november and flew away immediately afterwards
It's up to you entirely, if you don't have any business back home and your wallet is thick enough, you can obviously until the match day itself)
