Working from India while on H-1B during COVID


Recommended Posts

I am currently working in the US on H1-B visa. Our office is currently closed due to COVID and my employer has advised that we will be working from home till Feb 2022.  I have 2 questions:

1. Considering we are currently allowed to work from home- Can I go to India and work from India (or will there be any LCA issues)

2. If yes- for how long can I work from India without impacting my H-1 B visa status

When does your current H1b expire?  Do your have a visa stamp for coming back in February 2022 or will need stamping? Will you get a client letter, if currently working for a business client?  Will you be able to get an NIE letter from your employer for return back to US? (or do you have a citizen child?). 

Considering all the the factors are in your favor, you should be able to go to India and be back in 5 months, by Feb. 2022.  Lets see what others advise.
