H1-B denied after i-94 expiry, any issues for H4 stamping or port of entry


Recommended Posts

Hi,

My I-94 is expired in september 2017 and i was working in USA on timely filed extension receipt. My H1-B extension is denied on 23rd February 2018. USCIS website updated the denial decision on 27th February (after 4 days of actual denial). When I got the denial alert from USCIS website, I immediately departed USA on the very next day (28 February).

My husband is working on H1-b as a full time employee (direct client employment, no layers in between). Now, I booked H4 visa appointment for me and my son at Hyderabad consulate. Will I have any issues with H4 stamping, as I have 6 days of unlawful presence in USA?

I am getting very tensed. If anyone else was in the same boat, can you please share how the stamping is done.

Thank you so much for the help.

I believe you should be fine, as you are planning to go for H4 stamping,

Make sure to carry all necessary documents., your spouse I-797A approval copy.

I know few folks whose H1B got denied, I-94 expired, been out of status for a while, approved again by re-filing etc.,

Those cases got stamped successfully.

Don't worry much about the denial,

Be confident about your H4 status & that you are coming back to US to support your spouse.
