My wife on H4 visa with valid stamping valid till Dec,2018. We’ve applied for H1b this year (for year 2017-2018). We need to wait until lottery results comes out. She has to travel to India to attend her sisters Marriage on 17 Jun and come back to US by 15th July. As far I understand, she can come back to USA as she is having valid H4 visa. But, I got below questions :-
Is it right decision to travel India if you have applied for H1b visa (even you are not sure about the lottery result) ?
Does it going to impact lottery process ? As she has applied for H1B visa with current H4 documents. Once she will be back in month of July , will have new port of entry date etc. Do you think, this would impact her lottery process.
If her H1b Visa gets picked up in lottery and she is back in USA by July 15, so do you think her H1B required any amendment process ? Anyways, her H4 going to change to H1b from oct 1. How much risk is involved here?
Would be great help guys if you could provide your thoughts on this matter !! Thank you !!
