Currently on H1B visa, going through GC process. What are the repercussions of visiting/traveling to Iran from my future GC/US immigration perspective? I have a family member I want to visit but not sure if this will raise red flag for GC especially

I thought US has strict laws about any relationship with Iran

It does, hence why I am asking (My family and I are not Iranian)

If you have a H1 already then need not worry about your relationship with family member but more about if you need to visit consulate for stamping , lot of consulates are closed or taking up cases only in emergency

Then don't go 🤷‍♂️

Do you need to travel to Iran? I wouldn’t go either way. I’m a filthy colonialist and if Uncle Sam tells me not to travel to certain countries, I definitely will take that advice.

Seeking immigration / travel advise. I know we are not lawyers but any experiences / stories would be helpful.

Do I tell them about switching jobs, etc.? My new company lawyers are not providing clear guidance on this and suggesting against travel due to COVID in general. Thank you.

Hypothetical that I'm trying to quantify for myself. Say I make $100k and feel I can comfortably spend $2k on rent. Assume for arguments sake, I'm happy at this level with savings, social life, etc. I get a raise to $120k. What can I now afford in rent? A) $2.4k. I got a 20% raise, so I can spend 20% more in rent. B) $3.6k. I got a $20k raise, so I can spend $1.6k (rounded) more in rent. C) Somewhere in the middle Traditional thinking tells me A is correct, but it seems conservative.
