Karthik Devaraj Posted May 27, 2021 Report Share Posted May 27, 2021 Hello, [PERSONAL INFO REMOVED] I had an L1-A Visa stamping that is expiring by 11-Dec-2021. I applied for H1B conversion last year and got the I797A Petition Approved with change of status from 06-OCT-2020 with I-94 valid till Aug'2022 . Due to family emergency I travelled to India for 3 weeks on the month of April and re-entered back to U.S without H1-B Stamping since I misjudged that I can come back on my L-1A stamped visa. Also while re-entering CBP approved my with I-94 Date stamped under L1-A as well since it was stamped valid till 11-Dec-2021. I am not sure if this is a valid case since my visa status was supposed to change from L-1 A to H1-B from 06-OCT-2020 once the new petition with change of status was approved. Also I am completing my 6 years of stay in U.S by this August'2021 and does it mean that I can stay in U.S with my H1-B approved petition Only till Aug'2021 (I DO NOT have PERM/I-140 Approved Yet) though I-94 is valid till Aug'2022? I would appreciate your support to let me know on the impact/consequences and let me know on next process to ensure that I am in compliant with the Visa status.
