My previous H4 expired in October, 2020 and I have a new approved I-797A that is extended up to October, 2023. However, I do not have the new H4 visa stamp in my passport yet since I haven’t traveled outside the U.S. My I-94 (retrieved from here) also shows the past/incorrect “admit until date” of October 2020.
Can I travel to Canada for less than 7 days (For PR work) and enter back in the U.S based on my extended I-797 and expired H4 visa stamp? I read about automatic visa revalidation (AVR), that allows entering US from Canada within 30 days based on a valid I-797 and expired visa stamp. Is this correct and can I actually do that? Will I need a new/corrected I-94 (part of question-1) in addition to I-797A for AVR?
