Travel to USA while 221g on H1B

Recommended Posts


Recently I have come to India for H-1B stamping. Unfortunately, I got 221g blue slip with passport back after the interview and I am stuck in India waiting for the administrative process to move on.  I was under F1 OPT before utilizing 180 days extension based on initial OPT EAD card. My STEM OPT extension application is pending so my current expired EAD card is automatically extended until June end.  

My employer is becoming impatient because of 221g delays. I am afraid I might lose my job. I have a valid F1 visa until 2020. Can I enter the USA on F1 status while H-1B 221g is ongoing and utilize remaining OPT period?

My STEM OPT extension is approved by USCIS. Can I  travel to the USA on F1 while 221g is pending? I have a valid visa, EAD card, I20 signature, Job-related documents.

Experts on this forum, please let me know your views.
