expired H1B stamp- travel through europe

Hi Saurabh,

I have expired H1B stamp but got new work permit after H1B extension. can I travel through europe i mean hopping flight from US to india for stamping?

I have read at several places that its not allowed to hop in europe with expired visa. but one friend of mine ( in same scenario as mine) did travel some years back.

so is this rule still applicable

AFAIK, you need a valid US visa stamp or a transit visa when going through London or Frankfurt.
