(Anand Meenakshisundaram) #1

My H1b was filed on March 06 and as per the receipt the date is March 06 2019
My i94 expiry is March 06 2019
Will this be a problem as it was filed on the expiry date

I just got I797C approval notice for my wife for 3 years
Any one has got this
Still waiting for my H1 status
Will mine also approved?

I think your H1B approval must also be on the way.

What is I 797 c ?not heard of this bedore

Are you sure that you have received i797 C notice or approval or notice of Action?

I thought you said your H4 application has been approved. i797C is normally used for sending notice of receipt and not approvals. Please check again.

(Anand Meenakshisundaram) #7

In I797C it says Notice Type : Approval Notice and has the Validity for 3 years.
Not sure
It also says " We have mailed an official notice about this case , this is a courtesy copy.

What the Official Notice Said
The above application for Extension stay is approved.

Not sure why they have sent this notice before official notice

Then, you are fine if it clearly says that your application is approved.

(Anand Meenakshisundaram) #10

It is possible that online status has not been updated.
