Are we allowed to travel on a valid H1b stamp through previous employer ?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have to make an important travel (personal but not a medical emergency )to India.

I switched in Oct 2019 to a new employer and I have been working with this employer since Oct 2019 - till date.

I have - valid H1b Stamp from my previous employer until 02/04/2022 + Latest approved I797 with the current employer ( validity until august 2022)

I wanted to check - with the new travel restrictions to enter USA until Dec 31st 2020, am I allowed to enter USA with my stamp with previous employer ?

OR, Do I need to get new stamp with the latest employer to enter USA ? 

 As per my knowledge, before the executive order was imposed,  if a person has a valid H1b stamp on the passport they can enter USA by showing  the latest valid  I797 through new employer at the Immigration.

Please let me know if I can travel to India and return back to USA by mid Dec 2020.

If yes, what documents do I need to carry to show my services in USA.
