I-94 using AP expiring but having Valid H1-B I-797

Recommended Posts


have a valid I-797 from May 2021 to May 2024 but don't have the H1-B visa stamped.
Went for vacation to India last year and since I also had EAD/Advanced Parole, I entered using AP in October 2022 (used Advanced Parole to enter as it was difficult to get visa stamping dates last year).

During that time, they gave I-94 only for 1 year, and it is expiring in October 2023

The question is, am I allowed to stay even beyond the I-94 expiry date(based on AP) or should I have to travel out and re-enter using H1-B (I-797)?
