Paper i94 after H4 extension and Passport expiry

Hi @anil_am22 ,

My son’s H4 extension recently got approved and I got a paper I-94 with validity until May 2023 (as per my I797 validity) even though his passport is expiring in May 2022.

We are planning to travel to India in November 2021. When we enter USA, will his new I94 follow current date or it will be only till passport expiry?

Thanks,
Chandra

CBP officer will most probably give new i94 to match passport expiry when you reenter the US.

Thanks @anil_am22

In that case, do you recommend renewing passport before our travel or is it better to visit india, come back and renew passport and then extend i94 by visiting border post. Asking since both my sons passport expiry are far away (May 2022 and Nov 2022) but before current h4 validity (Apr 2023).

Its your choice. Take a decision based on what you think may help you.
