Gap between I-94 expired date and new H1B approval start date


Recommended Posts


My initial H1B was approved until 12-Sep-2016 and I-94 was valid until 22-Sep-2016. My employer filed for my H1B extension in June, 2016 which was prior to the I-94 expired date. I had my LCA starting from Jun, 2016 itself in the petition. My new extension approvals is received on 5th Jan, 2017 and it was valid from 4th Jan, 2017 to 2019 May. I stayed and worked in US between 12-Sep-2016 and 04-Jan-2017 because my extension was due at that time. My GC is in process currently with I-140 approved. Will this gap be considered as out of status? Will this cause any issue during my GC process?
