I did the same thing school OPT then H1B, haven’t been back home since 2018. Got approved for my extension and will be going home to get the stamp because I miss international travel :)

No you don’t need it. But ask your lawyer how to answer that question.

Ok whew I hope you’re right. I was starting to panic. I’m pretty sure this is an internal questionnaire ey legal uses. It’s for the h1b extension. But ya I never went home since I came to the US in 2014. F1 to Opt to F1 to Opt to H1B.

You can add your I94 number on the approval
