Hi

My Previous H1 visa expired on 31 Dec 2016 (I-94 also same day expiry), and I have filed for extension of H1 regular/normal processing before the expiry and today I have RFE for the H1 extension, Can I respond to RFE and travel back to India from USA on  240th day since previous I94 expiration which is the 28th Aug 2017.

Can I wait in India for RFE response from USCIS and travel back to US after Approved H1 B and visa stamping at US consulate in India thru drop box facility.

Is there any risk of traveling back to India from US when H1 extension is still under process.

Hi there, I am currently in the same situation as you are. My H1B petition was filed on 26 SEP 2016 and now almost after 9 months I got an RFE. My employer is asking me to leave the country before 240 days are complete.

Will it impact my extension petition if I travel outside USA. Also please share me your contact @ ashishkhedkar777@gmail.com

Curious to know your current situation. Did you got the extension approval?
