I94 Expiring, Valid I797 and Expired Visa


Recommended Posts


My I94 is expiring in June, because of my passport expiry. I have valid I797 until Mar 2018 and my Visa expired. Now I got a new passport, what is the best option to extend my i94.

1. Employer filing H1 amendment.

2. Exit and enter US using AVR (Automatic Visa Revalidation)

Hi, I was in the same situation, my I-94 expiring in 10 days. I got renewed passport 4days ago. went to Logan Airport, Boston, terminal E CBP window in left side. They noted down my name and after 5 minutes an officer came and took my old and new passports. Returned both passports with extended I94 copy till I797 validity in 5 minutes. Later I verified online.. it is updated and good. I never imagine it is that simple. Thanks to Sudhakar Y who guided me.
