Peeps I have H1b till Sep 2021 but my passport expired in Sep 2020 and along with it my I94. I had already renewed my passport back in Feb but haven’t left the country since. I read online that my presence in the USA is unlawful and staying here unlawfully for more than 180 would bar me from entering US for 3 years. What are my options ?

Search if you have a local CBP office, they do correct i94s

I know the VI team is shit, but ask them this question. You can raise a form on the Vi website/email them

Already did this. Wanted to know if anyone else has had the same experience.

How is it unlawful if your h1b is valid until sep 21?

This ☝️the 797 one is from uscis and supersedes the one issued by cbp until you cross the border

You went out of status the day your I94 expired, regardless of the validity period of your H1b petition. If your new I797 came with an updated I94 that applies, but given your passport has expired I suspect that I94 followed the same (as you said). You should get new stamping done or reach out to USCIS before you run out of 180 day grace period.

OP says his passport and and I94 expired in Sep 2020.

Yes local CBP office will extend i94 if u show them valid renewed passport
