I am going to file H1B while I am in the USA but I have to travel in late June. If my H1B case is picked and approved before late June, can I travel? Would the change of status be abandoned? If so, can I apply H1B outside USA then? Does company need to do anything extra which costs money?
You need to discuss this with your attorney. An application for change of status becomes abandoned if an applicant travels outside the US while it is pending.
