  • Traveling on OPT after H1-filing

    Hi,

    My OPT will end in June 2014. I will be applying for h1 b in April'2014. I want to travel to India in May after I apply for H1.
    Does H1 approval/rejection/application make any effect on my travel to India and come back? As I will be on valid OPT util June?

    Thanks

        from what I know, h1 approval or rejection should not affect your travel... if the petition is under review, you generally cannot travel till you get a reply (though I am not certain of this)... you can ask your company to file your petition in premium processing which will guarantee reply by 15th April.. i have done this last year, my petition was approved before I left for india, and returned while opt was valid..

          I assume you are on OPT Extension so its always risky to visit home country after applying H1B. so if your visit is inevitable then you may take risk or else i would suggest wait until u hear anything from USCIS. And also you didnt mentioned when will you come back?? In general your travel will not effect USCIS decision on H1B approval . If you are on initial OPT period then to be on safer side apply for Extension and H1B.

            Travaling while cos application is pending some times causes it's denial .. that means you might get 797b instead of 797a.. but it does not effect h1 application .. and.make sure you came back as soon as possible.. if you are coming back in june they might ask so many questions while coming back
