Leaving H1B with i-130 Pending

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I got my h1b approved this year. However, I have been thinking of leaving United States for good mid of 2013. I also have filed i-130 F4 which would be 10-12 years wait.

I'm going back to polish my engineering skills because I really have no hopes getting sponsored jobs in states at this moment. The current job is not giving what I really want.

Ok, let's say I leave this country. What are the steps should I do? I also have the intention to come back to states after my i-130 approved.

Thank you in advance.

After your F-4 case meets priority date (a visa number available for you), you will be interviewed in your country and an immigrant visa will be issued when you pass it. You can come back the States legally with a Green Card waiting for you by then. Everything you can do after you leave is to wait for the visa number available, then following the instruction when they contact you in your country.
