Travel Advisory for H-1B Cap Cases

May 1, 2008

We continue to advise foreign national employees to communicate with immigration counsel via their employers well in advance of any international travel. We have heard recent reports that F-1 students, with approved Fiscal Year 2009 H-1B petitions, may experience difficulties in re-entry to the United States after international travel due to the government prematurely updating the SEVIS system with H-1B approvals, thereby terminating any record of the student's F-1 status. Before traveling, students should verify with their Designated School Officials that SEVIS is properly updated to reflect their current immigration status.
