Port of entry doesn't matter. You can leave from JFK and come back through California. It totally depends on your airlines and the route you choose. I have done it many times.

Not sure about 2months left on your visa thing. I don't have any comment on that.

Default Recently entered at JFK

I have entered through JFK a week back. The officer was cordial..
Not sure whether the POE issues we have been hearing are resulting from any policy direction ..or just individuals acting on their own..
Just letting you know my experience .if it comforts..

I dont think that the USCIS can staff all the Port of Entries with officers who are well versed in every single visa type.

It can hardly be expected that a typical POE officer is aware of all the requirements and intricasies of the H1B visa; LCA, prevaling wage, bench, client/employer, paystubs, client letter etc.

Nevertheless it is possible that there might be some POE officers placed at certain places (strategically ? ) in light of recent efforts to enforce H1B and DOL regulations more stringently; especially in light of the recent report highlighting the large amount of frauds and violations in the H1B program. In that case; one should still be fine if one has long term client project, all paystubs, tax returns etc.

Is there any way Immigration voice can find out if there has been a change of policy to enforce H1B regulations at the Port of Entry? (In addition to consular interviews and applying for the H1B itself)
