Got an ACD on PL 165.40. Being an International student if I travel to my country can I come back to USA (I still have my Visa).

Asked almost 2 years ago - Brooklyn, NY

ACD was given this month and I know it takes 6 months to completely seal this case. But if I would like to travel to my country and come back is there any problem going to happen to me. I still have my Visa. Please reply me. This would be a great help. Thanks again.

    Answered . You could be denied re-entry to the US within the 6 month period before your case is dismissed and sealed. There is no guarantee that it will happen, but it did happen to a number of people with an open ACD. Try to avoid international travel if you can.
