Trip to India. Return to US before the visa expires in 3 weeks

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My H1b visa stamp in passport is expiring on Jun 30, 2012. I am goingto go to India and return to US around Jun 9th. I will have approved I-797 before I leave. Will it be any problem at POE in US or at Indian airport during my return trip? Your inputs will be appreciated.

Thanks.

VJ.

Hi,

Depends on the Officer at the point of entry as there is a chance of he questioning you why didn't you get it stamped when your visa stamp is expiring and visiting home. One of my friend in same situation got questioned but left him after some serious questions. It is minor risk but better be prepared with answers.

Thanks,

There is no risk. I have traveled with a few days of visa remaining. But like one poster mentioned, keep some cushion in case of delayed flights etc.
