Ports of Entry and H-1B
If you are an H-1B holder (or holder of another employment-based visa) or if you employ H-1B employees ensure that you, or your employee, keep evidence of current immigration status and employment verification documents on hand when traveling outside the United States. These documents include employment letter confirmation, pay stubs and approval notice. Ports of entry into the U.S. are closely reviewing documentation for those individuals with employment-based visas.
