I-94 Update

Recommended Posts


My current H1B stamping is ending by October 25th. I got my extension approved until 2025. I have to visit India due to a health emergency.  I am unable to get a slot for h1b dropbox in any of the consulates.  The earliest dates are in 2023.

I am planning to travel to India in Aug and be back to USA by October 1st week. At the port of entry if I show my approved i797 with the extended date will the i94 of me and my wife be updated to reflect that? 

The reason i am looking for an updated i94 is for my spouse's EAD application. 

Thank you for responses.

Yes. If you show your new H1b petition approval, you should be admitted on a new I-94 until the expiration of that petition (unless your passport expires earlier). If your spouse is entering with you on an unexpired visa, they should be admitted on a new I-94 with the same expiration as yours.
