My 1 year H1B Visa is expiring on October 13th 2016(My I-94 valid till 23rd October 2016) and my employer has filed my extension on June 21st under normal processing. I have a health urgency due to which i want to travel to India this year end. Please clarify my doubts below:-
Can i travel to India before my Visa expiry date with the extension filed ?(Note: I have got my receipt notice but not the approval)
If i travel to India after the Visa expiry before getting the approval, and then my approval gets rejected, does that mean my Visa gets a complete denial which means i have to again go through the CAP/ lottery process?
Please suggest what is best in this situation.
