Thought you said you have work permit on the other bowl.


Yes H1B but news was for business visa and I dont know if they will extend as well...

Knowing Trump, if you are not a US citizen, be prepared to get banished coming into the US. His “Mexican wall” dream come true.


I would get back ASAP. Try to avoid connecting in a country with a travel ban (I.e. don’t connect in Europe if you can avoid it)


Thats a great suggestion P1


Call Amex Travel and see what they know or have experienced this weekend. If you get a dolt on the phone hang up and call back. I would say EY help desk HR option also but think they only are weekdays.

I wouldn’t leave the country if I were you

Are you leaving the US or returning?

Wait you are trying to return to the US? You’ll be fine. There are no restrictions on H1B indians

Dude why would you want to travel at this point?
Right now India is much safer to be in, than US.

@OP did you not mention that you were traveling on business visa? I don't think that it is for employment based travel. What KPMG1 wrote applies to H1 or a L1 working in US and not for a business visa traveler.

He said he is traveling on business visa. That is a short visit visa. He is not coming for work.

Sorry for the confusion, I am on H1B work permit not business visa...

Good luck. You’re traveling tonight so you’ll know soon. Whats your airport of entry? Keep us posted
Sending you positive vibes

OP, did you make it back into the country?

Thanks everyone....I came this AM flew UA 83 Del to EWR direct...immigration was easy, no extra screening or anything as such...THANK God, we are here...now not leaving home for next couple of weeks...

Thats great!! Stay safe!
