    Hello Ron,
    My H1B amendment is in process & i have got receipt #. But i have family emergency and may have to travel to India in worst case.
    I have a valid I-797 till 2018 but do not have visa.
    1.Will there be any implications if i travel while petition has not be approved.
    2. Also there is 2 months wait for US visa at all consulates in India, in this case can i take 2 month personal family vacation, will there be any issues during Visa stamping interview.

    Your advise is appreciated as always. Thanks for all the support in advance.

    Raj

    You must have a valid visa to return. You may apply for a new visa while the amendment is in process, however.
