My current H1B Visa is stamped till Aug 2020. And if I travel outside the US in the coming months, will it be a problem? I have a trip planned in March 2020 to Europe for a week.

Any suggestions would be great.


Nope, not a problem. You can re-enter the US anytime until the visa expires. Though irrelevant in your case, if only travelling to Canada/Mexico for max 30 days, you can even return on an expired visa.

Once your visa expires, it is only next time you travel abroad (other than to Canada/Mexico for max 30 days) that you need to get a new one. In that case, make that trip slightly longer and arrange an embassy appointment there in advance. Alternatively, you can pop over to Canada/Mexico anytime after expiry specifically for the purpose of getting a new visa.
