Travel during H1b Amendment is in process - Not stamped


I am planning to travel to india during jan 2017. Amendment was filed during oct 2016 . Visa stamping not done.

Can I travel when amendment is in process (with receipt no)?

Is it possible to do premium processing and what will be the fee?


Travel means what? Just going to India? Sure, you can go without any issue during the amendment in progress.
But when you want to reenter to US, you need a stamped visa.


Yes, travel to india and while returning I need to get H1B visa stamped.

Mine is Change of Status. Will it have any issues when amendment is in process?
