I94 expired, H1B valid...best way out?


Recommended Posts

I am on H1B. I recently travelled to India without realizing that I had overstayed beyond the I-94 expiry in the USA by 1.5 months.
My H1B stamp and the I-94 on I-797A are still valid until Sept 2021, but my CBP I-94 expired on Sept 2020 due to old passport and I never applied for extension when I renewed the passport.

1. Can I try contacting CBP to try and get online I-94 updated with the I-797A  expiry date of Sept 2021?

2. I heard that another option is to get new H1B stamping in India.....but visa rejection chances are quite high ...so any other alternative that could be helpful?

Thanks in advance.
