I797B petition with 1 year validity


Recommended Posts

Hi Team,


My H1B  was stamped on May'13  will expires on 26th December 2013. I have not travelled US till now.

When I checked with my immigration Team they said that i cannot travel after 26th Sep'13, Is that true.


My I797 is valid for on;y one year from 26th Dec'12 - 26th Dec'13. Is my petetion valid for Visa extension.


I heard as per petetion validity it will epires and after that i cannot extend my visa for renewal.


What is the possibility to make my VISA valid and extensable. Please suggest.

were you on L1 or H1 before or is this your first H1B? If its the latter then your Immigration team is lying. You are subjected to another 5 yr extension.



This is my First H1B stamping and i have not travelled yet. You mean to say my petetion is valid for next 6 years for extension??

and i can travel even after sep 26th right?? is it good to travel just one month before visa expiry?? does i face issues@ port of entry..

Also if i change my petetioner now and can i travel by DEC'13
