Hi, I am working for a consulting firm here under H1B visa, my company is gonna send me to
work in UK for one year, any visa problems? (i am holding PRChina passport).

I have filed my I-140, will that affect my GC? and what do i need to take care of i go to
work there?

Thanks

Steve

No problem. As a matter of fact, a benefit - if you are outside the US for 365 days, you
will get another six years on your H-1B visa (however, you will also have to reapply for
the H-1B and would be subject to the quota again). If you stay in the UK for less than 365
days, you can continue to use the H-1B as if nothing had happened. Unfortunately, the time
in the UK will then count towards your six years.

>I have filed my I-140, will that affect my GC?

No problem. When it's approved, file form I-824 to request processing of the immigrant
visa in a consulate in China (you can ask if London will handle it, but they will most
likely refuse). Normally, I don't recommend using form I-824 for this purpose - but in
your case, it would work out perfectly. It will delay the case just long enough for your
year in the UK, and if the timing is right (quite likely given current processing times),
you will be able to pick up an immigrant visa in China. With a little luck, you won't have
to worry about returning to the US on H-1B at all.

You will obviously need a work permit for the UK.
