H1b extn in progress travel outside USA.. URGENT PLZZ HELP


Recommended Posts


My H1b extension is in progress at California Service Center 

current H1b. Expired April 25, 2017

H1 extn filed: Feb 27, 2017

RFE received: July 13, 2017

RFE responded/ received by USCIS:  Aug 10, 2017

There is a emergency situation I want to travel out of country around September 26, 2017. 

I am not sure if I will get approval by then. how are california service center response review times?

1. Is it safe to leave the country while H1-b extn is in progress? hoe does it impact my H1-b approval?

2. how does USCIS gets notified that I have left the country while case is pending?

3.  What are the chances that my h1b petition gets approved while my extension(I-94) gets denied? (not sure if I have used right terminology)

4. if my h1b gets approved while I am outside, can I go stamping and come back ?


Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!
