Folks,
I filed my 485, 765 and 131. I got the reciept no# via email yesterday. In the mean time I trasnferred to a new company. My H1 petition was approved but did not have the I-94 card and was told to travel outside the country to get a new I-94 stamp.

Can i travel outside the country now as 131 is pending.

Any suggestions?

You can leave with I-485 pending (I-131 is derived from I-485 status) as long as you have valid H1B or L1 (not necessarily stamped).

Another way: Lawyer may know more about this. There is a way to tranfer I-94 to another petition.

Thank you Apt29. I have a valid I94 currently which expires mid next year. I will talk to my attorney and see.
