Impact of Passport Expiry Date on Visa Issual

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My H1B is in Regular process. However my passport Expiry is date is in June 2019.

What could be impact of this on my visa issue ? In case I get visa approved, would I get visa only till June 2019 ?

Do you think my visa can be denied because of this ?

Appreciate your guidance.

Normally when you apply for H1B visa we provide copy of all pages of passport and I donot know whether they take passport validity into consideration but when you go for visa stamping they say minimum you must have 6 months passport validity...

For the H1 petition it shouldn't matter. To get a visa, though, the passport needs to be valid for at least 6 months.

The US embassy will not issue a visa on a passport expiring in under 6 months. If otherwise approved for a visa, they would deny you one until a new passport.
