Can I enter US with a H1-B visa stamp that’s expiring in a couple of weeks? I have a 797 approval notice for next 3 year cycle, but won’t have time for getting it stamped due to family emergency.

I came in 3 weeks or so before expiry..if you have the extension for 797, show that to the CBP officer can give the i94 based on the new 797... This is because your 797 would have an i94 of a future date than your visa and is the latest i94.. If you don’t show your 797, i94 would be for 2/3 weeks and you can’t work post that.. This is from my experience and not a legal advice 😊

If you have approved 797 with later expiry date, you can enter US upto the date on your visa

Thank you folks - your advice is is in line with my online research.

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct.

The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
