Passport Renewal while H1 to H4 COS is pending


Recommended Posts

I was on H1 till Aug12th,2015 . Applied for H1 to H4 COS and got the receipt on Aug 6th,2015.


My passport is valid till March 2016 .  I am planning to apply for passport renewal this month at SFO consulate.


The BLS website shows that "If the visa is expired and/or have the receipt notice for extension of visa , you must provide a notarized no status affidavit with photocopy of valid passport and the green card of  two witnesses duly notarized + 7 copies of Nationality verification form"


a) I have friends who have GC filed but its still not approved . So what can I provide in such situation ?


b) If option a is not required , is it sufficient to just provide the notarized copy of the COS receipt ? What else I can show as proof of my status ?
