Currently in India, H1b lottery picked can i travel to usa


Need an urgent help !! I am on H4 visa. I traveled to India in March. Before applying H1B.Now H1B petiton picked up in lottery. I am travelling back on 1st June.

Below are the few questions:1. Will i face any issues while travel back to US on H4 as h1b petition yet to arrive.2. Any conflict expected while issuing i94 at Port of Entry?

  1. Can i travel to usa before h1 approval if yes would it affect my h1 approval or cos?

  2. If in case i travel to usa after h1 approval on h4 visa vll my status be changed ? if yes then how can i change back to h1 and start working on h1 in oct.

Thanks in advance…!!

Your H4 is a valid travel document until your change of status becomes effective.

Thanks for the reply shankar,
I read in the multiple posts that COS will become abandoned if i travel outside US when my h1 application is under processing. could you please share your opinion on this. If yes can i apply COS once i am in USA without going for h1 stamping
