h1b extension and travel


Recommended Posts

my H1b and i-94 expires on nov 20 2014 and i have applied for extension. 



1) my company (x) has been acquired by another company (y)

2) the visa stamp was from old company.(x)



1) can i travel outside usa  and come back before nov 20th? considering if my extension was approved.


2)  would it be a problem at the border if i came back with just few days left?


3) what happens if my visa gets rejected what are options?

No, you cannot travel and come back, you need to schedule an appointment with Consulate, apply & get your new I-797 with updated company information and state that it was acquired by new company.

At POE IO might look for your current company on your I-797 & passport but in reality it does not exist since you know it was already acquired by new company. 

I hope your visa would not be rejected but if it does then talk to your attorney/employer as USCIS would clearly indicate the reason for denial.
