H1-b extension approved with old i-94 number

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

My H1-b visa is valid till March 31 2020. I applied for an extension in January 2020 using lets say I-94 number "123"(has validity till 31st march 2020). I had to travel to India in February for some emergency and returned by the end of February. At the port of entry I was issued a new I-94 number "456", with validity till the 31st of March 2020. So far so good. I had my application premium processed after coming back and got the approval today. In the approval email, the old I-94 number "123" is extended till 2021 and not the latest "456" one. Is this a problem? If yes, what steps do I have to take as travel and stamping are not possible right now due to CoVID-19 restrictions?

456 is the latest I94. Its best to travel to get a new I94 on the basis on the newly approved petition. 

Call your local CBP office and see if they can help only because of this special situation caused by the Chinese virus.  Consulting an attorney will also be a good option if CBP can't help.
