Passport expires sooner than i-797 expiration.

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My current passport expires on February 23, 2022 and my current i-797 expires on December 30, 2023. I'm currently in India and have valid stamping till December 31, 2020. I'm traveling back to US on December 18, 2020. Will my passport be accepted since its expiring 18 months before my i-797 expiration date. I read in a blog that H1b visa holder requires "Passport (valid through the end date of Form I-797A Notice of Action)" and in another blog i read that H1b visa holder requires "Passport valid for six months beyond the duration of your H-1B status".

Which one of these are True statements? Im not eligible in either of the cases since my passport is expiring 18 months before my i-797 expiration date. Please suggest. 

Thanks & Regards,
Srinath Kankanala
