Entering USA few days before my H1B visa expires

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks,

I am going to India for my wedding and coming back on Aug 23rd. My current H1B visa expires on Aug 31st.

Will this be a problem?

I have applied for H1B extension and hopefully I will get it soon.

If I show the new H1B extension to VO at POE, will he give the I-94 based on my new H1B document?

Also I came to know, the I-94 issuing process is now changed, how will this affect my case?

Please advice!!!

Also I came to know, the I-94 issuing process is now changed, how will this affect my case?

Technically, you should not have any issue returning to US but I would avoid such circumstances unless you have to go. Its your own wedding, so I guess you have to go :)

I-94 will be issued until Aug 31st. Remember you can not use I-797 (new approval notice) to enter US. You need the valid visa to enter.

Why don't you go for the VISA stamping with new approval (provided you get one) and then come back. you will have I-94 for the duration of your extension.
