I-94 expiry issued at POE. I-797 date ? or Visa Stamp date?

Hi, I have H1B Visa Stamp(with old employer) valid till Aug 2022 and I-797(with new employer) valid till May 2023. If I want to Visit India and return without going for dropbox appointment, What would be the expiration for I-94 which will be issued at the Port of entry ? Will it be Aug 2022 or May 2023 ?

CBP will issue I94 till the validity of your current I797 provided your passport is valid beyond May 2023.

Thanks Kalpesh. So, my current Visa stamp expiry doesn’t matter then !!

No. Visa is only a travel document. Your status in the US is governed by I-94.
