H1B after Political asylum rejection

Asked over 1 year ago - Iselin, NJ

I had applied for political asylum 3 years ago. I was rejected back then. Now I have received H1B visa through my employer. Fortunately the situation in the country has also got better. Is it safe to go back to my hometown to visit my family members and then return to the U.S? Or do I have to get a Green Card or a citizenship in order to do that?

    Answered . You can travel with a valid H1B visa, but if you had a legitimate fear of persecution you might not want to.
