Passport Expiry impact on H1B lottery and approval


My passport expires in another 8 months and I’m planning for applying for a new passport in tatkal to register before March 9th. Will the new passport numbers impact my H1B lottery process in both regular and Masters quota?.

My concern is getting shorter I-94 validity if H1b gets approved with an old passport number(F1 Visa stamped on this).


Hi Vivek,

I am in same situation now, My registration done with old passport and it picked lottery.
but my passport will be expired on Jan-2022, I have not submitted the documents yet.
I need to submit this week.

My concern is shall get it renewed the passport and provide the new passport number while submitting the H1B documentation ?
is that be any issue ? or do we have any better solution ?

Can you share your experience too ?
