H1B Consular Processing - Any disadvantages?


Recommended Posts

I am looking for some guidance on ability to travel while a H1B application for FY 2020 is under processing. In order to enable that I was reading that we could do this if we opt for consular processing thereby giving me the option to go for stamping after the decision is made unlike Change of Status and also letting me travel while this happens. My current OPT/EAD ends July 2019, and I plan to apply for an OPT extension shortly to extend that for the 2 year timeframe which is what I hope to use whole the H1B process goes through under consular processing to work and travel.

Are there specific disadvantages to take the route of Consular Processing?

Thank you in advance!
