Travel after applying H1B


Recommended Posts

My employer would be applying for my H1B this April. I am planning to get married on April 4th and so I would be travelling to my home country from March last week and return to USA on April 8th. 
Usually the H1B lottery happens after one week of H1B applications acceptance is closed. So, would this travel result in the abandonment of my H1B application? If yes, please suggest any steps to overcome the negative effects.

I may not be 100% correct. My guess

First question,  how are you going to be back on April 8 ? when you are applying for H1.. i guess you have OPT or F1 status.. 

But if your application picked up and then you can re supply your I-94  -- for the picked up H1, But remember, you might get RFE on the same.. on status or other things... 

Hopefully they approve your H1 but you might be missing I-94 on your approved I-797. You have to go to stamping.. immediately. 

Take help of attorney on this issue.
