I94 Expires, h4 Visa valid


I am on h4 visa in usa with h4 valid till Aug 2017 & i94 till sept 12 2016. Since I have my h4 valid till Aug 2017 & also my husband’s latest I-797 dated till Aug 2017 petitions are available with me, Can i get a new I94 valid from Sept 2016 to Aug 2017. I cannot cross the border and get the latest stamped I94 because my COS h4 - h1b is in process with USCIS.Kindly help.

You should file I-94 extension and get extended I94.

Thanks Saurabh for ur reply.
How can I extend it without crossing the US border?

Yes, you can do that. File I-539 with USCIS.

See if your spouse’s employer would support that and you can use their services to do this for you.


I got my problem solved i.e I got my i94 with new dates as per the latest h1b petition of my husband by sending an email and the required documents to the CBP(suitable for me). They issued me an entirely new i94 within a day. :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
