  • H1b stamping question!!!!

    Hello Guys Please help with my H1b stamping queries...

    My current H1b petition and stamping is valid until 31 Dec-2012..I got H1 approval for only 15 months instead of 3 years because of contract position.
    Now my company has extended my H1b petition which is valid until Dec-2013..
    I need to visit india for my wedding from 18th Nov to 15th dec..
    My visa is valid until 31 dec-2012 and petition is approved until Dec-2013.
    My question is while going to India do I need to visit US embassy for Visa renewal....
    I don't want to visit us embassy because of 221g issues..
    For my first stamping I got 221g blue slip and it took 4 months to get clearance..
    Would be any issues at port of entry (I have valid visa until 31 dec-2012 and H1b petition approval until dec-2013)

    Thanks for your help in advance!!!

    You will be allowed to enter U.S as long as the H1B petition and visa remains valid. Usually the I-94 at the POE is issued still the petition expiry date (assuming your passport remains valid for more than a year as of the date of your entry). Only in very rare cases, depending on the officer at the POE, the I-94 is issued till the visa expiry date.
    Not a legal advice. Use of this information is strictly at your own risk.
