    Default International Travel on L1 Visa With Pending Petition Extension

    Good evening! I have a valid L-1 expiring march 2014. However, the petition expires 03 apr 2012. ( and this date is clearly shown on the visa stamp as PED:03 April 2012 )

    My company filled for the petition extension today. They told me that it could take months for the petition extension, but even so I would be legal staying working in USA.

    However, I have a possible international travel mid-April. Can I travel internationally and come back to US in this situation? If so, what documents should I take with me?

    Thank you!

    Celio

    Given that your visa expires on April 3 and you do not plan to travel until mid-April, you would not want to travel unless the L-1 extension is approved before your travel date. Although you may travel internationally while in L-1 status with a pending petition for a L-1 visa extension, if your current L-1 status expires while you are abroad then before returning to the U.S. you must obtain a new L visa.

    Thank you for the reply. Just making sure, my L-1 Visa is good until March 2014. However, Petition good until 03 april 2012. My company is asking for a Petition extension, not visa (does this make sense)? Is this the same?

    They should have filed for premium processing for a speedy decision.
