F1 to H1B - COS, No stamp. Passport Renew in USA ?

Recommended Posts


I got my H1B approved last year. Moved from F1 to H1B with Change of Status (COS). I am still in USA. I know if I leave US, I need to get H1B Stamping to re-enter. But now I want to renew my Indian Passport here in USA before I leave for stamping. 

What should I keep in mind if I go to renew my passport now (here in USA before Stamping) ? Do I need to do anything for the I-94 - I received a new I-94 with my COS ? Do I have to tell US Immigration, I changed my passport ?

Or it doesn't matter - I just renew my passport - keep working in USA as normal. And go for stamping in future whenever I want ?

In short, does updating my passport, affects my approved H1B in any regards ?
