Hello Everyone,

I have filed two applications back to back for H1-B extension, Please have a look at below dates and advice.

I filed H1-B extension last year in 2015 and I-797 approval notice which I received from USICS shows different date of validity for H1-B applicant( primary applicant) and dependent.
H-1B applicant validity dates are: 1 Jan 2016 to 31st Dec 2016
H4 dependents validity dates are: 16 Nov 2015 to 15 Nov 2016

This year (2016) I also filed for premium extension (As I had plan to go to India in Dec 2016). For newer applications validity dates are:
H-1B applicant validity dates are: 1st Jan 2017 to 31st Dec 2018
H4 dependents validity dates are: 1st Jan 2017 to 31st Dec 2018

So there is a GAP of 45 days (16 Nov 2016 - 31st Dec 2016) for dependent H4 I-94 validity. I am not sure what to do? Could you please suggest me.

I came to US on H1B visa in Aug 2014 and still I have lived only two years in US.

Thanks,
Gaurav
