New H4 visa - is old i94 still valid?

Hello @Anil_Gupta

I have an approved H4 till September 2022.

My spouse changed the employee and now I have a new H4 visa till October 2023 (yet to receive the i797 for this.

My question is - what happens to my old H4 and i94? Does it become invalid?

I am currently in Canada and plan to travel back using avr and have the old approved i797 (valid till sept 2022) with me.

Your new I-94 and H4 approval will govern your status and period of stay in the US. Old I-94 will no more be valid.

You will need to carry the new I-797 to enter the US. Someone will need to mail you the document.
