Can we travel when h1b is in rfe

Recommended Posts

I have recently got an rfe. I have a emergency so have to travel in a week or so,  i have a valid opt till dec 2020. 

Is it okay if i come back and answer my rfe, will there be any problem in the re entry, as my COS will be denied.

And what happens to my f1 status, Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, if you think you will have enough time to answer it after coming back.

Mostly no, if you are maintaining your F1 status

I am also facing a similar situation. I got an RFE, but my STEM OPT is valid till 2021

I have to submit the evidence for RFE by Jan 2020. So I am planning to submit all the documents (for RFE) after I come back.

But I am worried if there would be any issue at Port of Entry, because of my RFE?

Same answers as above. They apply for your case too.

Your Change of Status might be denied as you will get a new I94 after you come back. Talk to your attorney and see what they suggest.
