Travelling to India while H1 petition is in process?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Currenty I hold a valid H1b visa which expires on sep 30 2014.I am planning to go to India for my marriage in the first of week of August and return by Sep 1st.


My employer is going to file my H1b extension petition this week with premium processing. I have below concerns:

- If for some reason the petition is under processing, is it ok to travel to India while the petition is processing? 

- Assuming I have a approved petition, can I enter US without having to go to visa stamping with new petition. 


Appreciate your feedback.



Thank you
