Travel outside USA on email approval receipt for H1B extension


Recommended Posts


I had received e-mail approval receipt for H1B extension in June 2020, but haven't received paper receipt in mail yet for more than 5 months after email. My existing visa and I-94 expired in Aug 2020. I need to travel to India for a family emergency.

1> Can I use e-mail approval receipt, in lieu of paper receipt, at US consulate in India for visa stamping? 

2> If no, will travelling impact extension? I think I can get paper copy mailed to India when mail is received in US and use that for stamping. Please confirm.

3> I think I can get  National Interest Exceptions to Presidential Proclamations (10014 & 10052) for reentry on H1B extension visa stamp with same employer and same position. Please confirm.
