Passport expires before visa how to extend immigration stamp after re-issue of passport

Recommended Posts


My passport expires in Feb 2015 and my visa is valid until Sept 2015. The immigration officer has put down Feb 2015 as the valid to date on the immigration stamp in my passport. My question is, once I get a new passport, how do I get the immigration stamp extended to the expiry date of my visa? Do I have to travel outside the US for this or can I do it without leaving the country?


Thank you!!

Date of I94 expiry counts and not visa while you stay in US. If I94 expires during passport expiry then you need to exit and enter US with a valid H1B visa and I797 or employer files for EOS. 

Easiest way is to get a new passport now and exit and enter with both passports and get a new extended I94.
