H1b amendment and international travel


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a valid h1b visa stamp till December 2016

My company is in NJ

Client is in NY

I work remotely in Texas

After getting my visa stamped last year I had to move to Texas to work from home. Client agreed and my employer filed h1b amendment on August 13th 2015 .

I had to travel to India on vacation next week. Yesterday my employer said not to go as my h1b amendment is still under review and that if I travel it will change my I-94 which will effect my h1b amendment. Employer said it will raise unnecessary RFE on my application.

I do have the h1b amendment receipt notice with me.

Can some one explain if this is a problem. It's last minute and I have to lose all my planned vacation and its expenses .
