  • Travel Between H1b registration selection and filing period


    I have a question regarding travel. Currently I am on STEM OPT F1 visa final year which ends in July 2022. My employer will be applying for H1b this year. I suddenly have an important event to take care in India in April 2nd week and have to be present there for 2 weeks. My question is
    1) Can I travel to India during my STEM OPT which will set to expire in couple of months and will it cause issues coming back?
    2) If my registration gets selected this year and usually applications are filed from 1st week of April, Can I hold the application process for couple of weeks from my employer side and take care of my work in India and apply after coming back to USA?

    If my H1b registration doesn't get selected, the first question will apply again. Can someone let me know regarding this?
