以下是我May2018 问我们律师的问题。

 

 My questions to our lawyer:

My current H1B will expire July 31, 2018 and our university is helping me renew it.

 

Questions:    After I get the new I-797 approval notice, hopefully before July 31, 2018,

do I need to go outside the US to apply for an H1B visa again as I did in August 2015 at the US consulate in Toronto for my current H1B visa? Or I just need to go to Canada and get a stamp at the POE such as port of Huron (in case of driving) or at YYZ Toronto international airport (in case of flight)?

 

Our lawyer to me:  You may travel internationally even after I-140 approval.  You need to make sure you have a valid passport and valid H-1B visa to effect reentry.

If you travel internationally after your H-1B extension is approved, and seek to reenter the U.S. before your current H-1B visa expires 7/31/2018, you use your existing H-1B visa PLUS THE NEW H-1B APPROVAL NOTICE when you apply for reentry.  You must make sure the CBP officer gives you the full validity of the H-1B approval for your new period of stay on the I-94 and does not cut your stay short by only admitting you to the expiration of your H-1B visa.

 

For travel after 7/31/2018, you will need to apply for and obtain a new H-1B visa at a US consulate outside of the U.S. to effect reentry.

 

我本人2015年在多伦多的美国领事馆申请到H1B签证,2015年8月起在美国某公立大学任教职至今。期间多次往返美国加拿大,并在2017年在我的I-140批准前回过中国然后返回美国。

现在的情况是我本人的H1B和我太太的H4延期申请在6月29日都得到批准,新的有效期至7/31/2021。我太太持加拿大护照,我持中国护照和加拿大枫叶卡。

我的I-140已经在2017下半年得到批准。

 

我们打算7月15 日开车到加拿大游玩访友,然后7月25日开车回美国。我的后续问题是:

1. 如果美国CBP海关边防官员给我新的H1B有效期至7/31/2021,那么我8/8/2018 到 8/11/2018 自己再到加拿大开会的话,是不是我已经不用到美国驻加拿大领事馆签证,也可以在会议结束后回美国了?

2. 我们的律师(学校雇的)说:You must make sure the CBP officer gives you the full validity of the H-1B approval for your new period of stay on the I-94 and does not cut your stay short by only admitting you to the expiration of your H-1B visa.

我自己理解是我应该被允许提醒边境官我有这个需求,并可以当场提供辅助文件。8老师知道边境官normally 会批准新的H1B全部有效期的概率多大?换言之这是否是很常规的操作,而非比较特殊的需求?我们律师在渡假,这个星期问不了她。

 

谢谢您的答复与分享!
