H1B Stamping with Valid VISA


FL2Jamaica

Recommended Posts

Hello Immigration Gurus

 

I had a 3 yrs approved H1B Visa from 2011 -2014 (Dec 22) and stamping was done in Canada last year.

 

 My questions are:

 

1) I filed for H1B extension this month (July) and if my H1B extension is approved in           SEPT/OCT, can I go for stamping to Jamaica in Oct/Nov 2014 or should i wait till my       H1B stamp/VISA expires ( Dec 22, 2014) in my passport?

 

2) How soon can we go for H1B stamping with new H1 extension/new I 797? 

 

3) I read few forums that we can go for H1B stamping (new I797) 90 days before old VISA     stamping (old I797) expires?

 

4) I live in Florida, So thought I will go to Jamaica ( 2 hrs flight from here).

 

Please provide your valuable inputs on this.

 

Thanks

You have to make sure and request at POE while coming back to give I-94 based on new h1b and not old one otherwise if they give you I-94 based on old h1 you may have to exit/enter in usa again after first one get expire.
