Port of Entry (I94 only for 2 months)


Recommended Posts

Hi All, here is my situation. While i was returning from India after successfully getting my H1B extension stamping done. But at the port of entry in NY my I-94 was stamped with the expiry date of my Indian passport as it is getting expired within 2months rather than the H1B expiry date.

I have already applied for my passport to get extension. What do i do next. What is the easiest way to get a new I-94 without going out of country? or do i have to go out of country again? Appreciate your help!

Since CBP did not perform any mistake at POE, they will not correct it unless you are lucky few people on this forum.

from what i know there are only two options

Option 1: going out of country (you can use the AVR process by going to mexico/canada) and receive new I94 with your newer passport. Please research this forum for the steps taken to reach and at mexico consulate.

Option 2: File new H1B Petition once you receive new passport

Consult your company's HR and Attorney on above options and decide which one will be best for you.
