Hi All! I have a valid & stamped H1 until Mar'22. Planning a vacation to home country (India) in Nov/Dec as I don't have to worry about getting it stamped.

There's a chance the extension might get approved during my stay there & I might not get that new 797 mailed to me. Can that create an issue in immigration if I just show the current stamp/797? TIA!!!
