Q: Will I face any issues or questions at the immigration/immigration office?
I am planning to travel to India, and I have a question regarding my return to the USA. I currently have an employer but don't have any clients. Could you kindly inform me if there might be any potential issues I could face in this situation during immigration? Will they ask any questions at the immigration office? I would greatly appreciate your guidance.
It depends on what status you have in the U.S. If you are a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident, you will have no problem coming back to the U.S. with your U.S. passport or green card. If you have H-1B worker status or F-1 student status, you can also travel, but you may need to apply for an H-1B visa or a new F-1 visa at the U.S. embassy in India before you return. The process for coming back to the U.S. depends on your status in the U.S. when you leave.
A consultation with an attorney will be able to help you have a more detailed answer and more detailed plan.
