Valid h1 stamp till 2024 and i94 valid till 2026, can I stay in US after h1 grace period of 60 days

Recommended Posts


I got impacted by layoff on March 7 and thats my last working day.

My h1 stamp is valid till March 2024 and since my h1 transfer was recent so i94 and i797 is valid till Jan 2026.

Usually we need to leave usa after 60 days grace period, but in my case with valid i94 can I stay back till I find job. 

Once new employer files h1, I can just exit and enter ?

Will that work
