I am on OPT, and my current employer is going to submit an H1B registration for me in March. If I travel outside the U.S. while the registration is pending, will that be an issue?


International travel would have no impact on a pending (or selected) H1B registration. Travel would only potentially be an issue if the registration is selected and the H1B petition is filed requesting a change of status. (23.Jan.2020)
