Hello everyone. I have a query regarding my Indian passport renewal please, and would appreciate any kind of advice.
My Indian passport is about to expire, the H4B visa stamped on it - was valid till 2017.
But I have renewed valid I-797 - since I renewed/extended my H4 from the US itself and since then have not gone out of the country to get it stamped. I also have a H4-EAD.
In CKGS website, in the initial widget, for the question on ‘US Legal Status’, I chose ‘valid dependant visa’ instead of ‘I-797’.
I then proceeded to complete the whole ,application, paid the fees, and I am about to ship my documents (to Houston).
But since my visa expired in 2017 but I have a valid I-797, will it be a problem since the CHECKLIST says “Legal status proof in US’ is 'Valid Visa” and not “I-797”?
It seems a small mistake, especially since my status is legal with all the required documents from USCIS (I-797, and I also have a H4-EAD).
Would really appreciate your input and advice.
Thank you for all your help !
