Automatic Visa Revalidation (AVR) Question


Recommended Posts


My wife and I are currently in the United States on H4 and H1B visas, respectively. We have a valid Canadian visitor visa and would like to visit Canada for a period of seven days before returning to the US. While I have a valid H1B visa stamped in my passport until 2025, my wife only has an approved I-797 form and an I-94 valid until 2025. Although my wife has completed a DS-160 form and paid the fees for a dropbox appointment in India, she has not scheduled or appeared for an interview yet. We are wondering if we can use the Automatic Revalidation (AVR) process to re-enter the United States. Do you have any information on this?
