Travel during H1B Amendment is pending


Recommended Posts



I have a valid I-797 and Visa till Aug 2014. Now due to change in location, employer[Full Time] is filing for H1B Amendment sometime in Sept 2013.

I believe the H1B Amendment also takes same time as H1 extn. which going by today's standards is 5 to 6 months.

Need to travel outside the country in Nov 2013. Is it ok to travel with the amendment still in progress? Will I be able to enter US with the existing I-797 and Visa.

Hey guys,


Did you go through the process? What was the result. Would appreciate a response. I'm in a similar situation now. Employer applied for my H1B amendment and I need to travel outside US. My previous H1b and I797 was approved in 2013 and I got my stamping done in Mexico in January of 2014. Now I need to travel outside US for work and my employer has applied for my H1B amendment because of a change of location. It is under process. Can I travel outside at this time?
