H1B STAMPING WITH APPROVED EXTENSION WHILE H1B AMENDMENT IN PROCESS


Recommended Posts

My current H1B visa (issued in India) stamping expired on 16 July 2021. My employer had filed for H1B extension, got it approved and received LCA, I797A and I129 forms. This extension was filed & approved (April-2021). I got promoted to a new role after that with a same employer and hence an amendment was filed in August 2021. 

I have an urgent need to travel to India and since my visa stamping is expired, I have to go for stamping. I am eligible for dropbox and have scheduled dropbox appointment. The H1B amendment case status is still "Case was received".

Below are my questions:

1. Am I eligible (or is it safe) to go for stamping in this case?

2. If I go for stamping while Amendment is pending, will it cause/result any issues?

3. Will I be allowed to reenter? 

Any help in clarifying above questions will be greatly appreciated.  Please let me know what options I have. I have to travel to India to cater to my wife. 

Thanks in advance.
