Hi All,

My I-94 (which I got when entered US last time) expires this April which matches my passport expiry date. My H1-B is still valid until Sept 2014. I just got the new passport so I’m thinking of going to Tijuana to get the new I-94 which will now match my H1-B expiry. Please help me with the questions below.

 

1.  Am I doing the right thing in going to Tijuana for getting a new I-94?

2.  Did anyone of you used this approach to get a new I-94? If so please share your experiences.

3.  Is Mexican visa required?

 

Appreciate your help.

 

Thanks

1. Park the car in SAN Diego. Take the trolley to the border. Cross the turnstiles by foot and make a U-turn.

2. No

3. Your H1 related documents and Passport.

4. Only if you mumble your replies to questions and look evasive. Smile once, make eye contact and specify clearly that you are there to get a new I94 as the old one expired with your old passport. Pay the 6 or 12 USD whatever is the fee and get a changed I94 . If the specific Officer has no clue ask politely to speak to a Supervisor and get the job done. Make sure you do not use AVR. Politely insist on a new I94 and get it.

 

Look at GOOGLE Maps for a graphic view of the Mexican Border at Tijuana to give you an idea.
