  • I-94 Expired But H1b Visa Still Valid


    My H1B status is still valid until Nov 28th 2005. I returned to my home country in July 2003 for vacation and returned to US after 2 weeks. Upon entry at SFO, the immigration officer stamped Feb 18 2005 on the I-94 because my passport expiry date is Feb 18 2005 instead of Nov 28th 2005. Does this mean I am currently out of status? I have recently received my new passport from my consulate office. Please advise what I need to do. Should I contact my attorney right away or should I make an appointment with local INS office to rectify this problem? I am very nervous right now. Thanks.

      I-94 expired. Please help


      I need some advice on my situation

      -My I-797 approval notice is valid until Nov 2006

      -I sent my passport to St.Louis for visa revalidation
      in Mar 2004 and got my visa stamped until Apr 2005.

      -I travelled to India in Jun 2004. While entering the
      U.S in Jul 2004, the INS officer stamped my I-94
      expiration date as Jul 5, 2005 as my passport expires
      on Jul 5, 2005.

      -I have renewed my passport in Mar 2005.

      -But my I-94 expired on Jul 5th, 2005.

      My company lawyers said that I need to file a H1
      extension but the chances of approval are very slim
      and I have to travel to my home country ASAP. I am not
      sure about what I should do. I am trying to see if the
      situation can be rectified without me having to travel
      outside the U.S. I am really worried and would very
      much appreciate your opinion and advice on this issue.
