H1B Drop Box Question

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am currently in US with an expired Visa and valid I94, recently booked a drop box appointment in Kolkata India mid December.  My appointment confirmation have an important notes related to drop box and need some legal guidance related to physical drop off documentation.

"You are not required to submit documents in person at the Drop-Off
location but may send a representative carrying all the above listed
documents as per specification"

1. Can I send my passport original, all documentations to India through courier services and ask a representative to submit drop box behalf of me without travelling to India?  Collect the visa stamped passport later on?

2. If yes, is it legal to stay inside US without Passport?

Appreciate your response.
