Hello. I got a RFE from immigration a few days ago to my EB-2 + NIW. My tourist visa will expire in late June. I already extended it twice (I had special circumstances that convinced immigration to extend it to this extent) so in June I'll already be in the U.S. for a year and a half on a tourist visa.
I'll do my best to answer the RFE as soon as possible because I want to get a reply while I'm still in the U.S. so I could avoid the consular processing back in my country, if the petition gets approved.
My question: If I leave the U.S. to for a month or two (not to my country, let's say to Canada) and my EB-2+NIW petition get approved during that period- will I be allowed back into the states on a tourist visa so I can file for a green card from inside the U.S?
