Emergency Travel during i485 pending


Recommended Posts

I just traveled to india on emergency. My company has filed a downgrade from EB2 to EB3 with 485, EAD and AP and  waiting for a receipt.

I just traveled to India on a valid H1B status due to emergency and dropped my passport through dropbox. Now waiting for new visa stamp approval

I am going to return to the US second week of January with a new valid stamp and h1b status.  What happens to my i485 application which is pending and reciept not received yet. 

Please reply.

If the "received date" of the I-485 (which will be known when you receive the receipt) is before the date you left the US, it should be fine. The I-485 will still be pending and won't be abandoned. On the other hand, if the received date of the I-485 is after you left the US, the I-485 will be denied as you must be in the US when the I-485 is filed. You would have to file I-485 again in that case.

Do you have any issues with the visa stamp or the 485 application. I am in the same situation planning to travel but in my case i am waiting for my wifes 485 receipts
