Travelling to India this Weekend !


Recommended Posts


I am travelling to India this weekend .. My current H1B extension is valid till Sep 30,2021. I am planning to return on September 1st 2021.

I have applied for an H1B extension in premium awaiting for approval which may happen anytime. 

Below are my questions :

1. Can I exit the country if my H1B is still pending ?

2. Is there any impact to my H1B approval if i am not in USA during the approval process.

3. Can i show my new I797 to the officer at Port of entry so they can update my i-94 to reflect new expiry date? what happens if the officer uses my old i-94 expiry date of Sep 30,2021 .. Do i need to re-apply my H1B?

Please advise.
