Travelling to India via Dubai with Approved I-797 and Expired visa


Recommended Posts

I am planning to travel to New Delhi via Dubai this holiday season as an Indian passport holder. Unfortunately, there is a 9 hour layover in Dubai and hence Emirates will provide me a hotel stay and visa. 


I have an approved I-797 but an expired visa. Does anyone know if approved I-797 along with expired visa “work" for getting accommodation through Emirates in Dubai? or will I be stranded inside the airport. I checked with the airlines and they seem to be clueless about i-797.
