H1-B visa stamped - Passport expiring

Recommended Posts

Hey folks.. Just wanted to share my experience with you. I recently got a 3 year visa stamping done in Chennai, valid until 2022. However my passport is expiring early 2021. I was under the impression that I will have the I94 date till the passport expiry date only. I traveled yesterday to Amreeeka.. However, on port of entry, to my surprise, the I94 date was entered till the visa expiry date in 2022. 

Maybe, I was just lucky? 

Good luck!

you might not be so lucky next time. Get the passport renewed and carry it with the visa passport from next time. I renewed my passport 2 years in advance just for this reason.

Already in the works. I'm going to Canada anyway on a vacation later this year. So, I would've been okay either ways...  🙂

I had the same question because you can renew only 1 year before expiry.

You can choose a reason to renew the passport

1) Change of address on the back of the Passport

2) Change of appearance

3) Adding Spouse name  

 

These are unconventional ways of renewing the passport , but it works :)
