PSA - even if US CBP official doesn’t ask for latest i797A during re-entry, show it! Otherwise they update the i94 with the valid to date of the h1b visa stamp which if you have transferred companies doesn’t reflect the accurate date (most transfers have some extension). Learned the hard way but the correction process is smooth at least in Chicago.

Thank you for posting this! Also wanted to add that you should be mindful of your passport expiration, because even if you present your latest 797, some officers will update your I-94 to reflect your passport expiration if it comes sooner than the expiration of your 797.

How did you go about correcting it in Chicago?

Send an email to i94chi@cbp.dhs.gov with attached passport, visa, i797A, i94 which needs correction, CBP stamp. Add your name in subject line and in the email body add a brief description of the issue and what needs to be corrected.

UK Onsite Opportunity: Multiple people requesting for UK onsite. There are 3 ways. 1. Study a 1 year course in UK on student visa and get PSW permit for 2 years. Part time job will help cover food and accommodation cost. If you're married the spouse can work full time for 3 years. Safe way, around 15 lakhs investment. Can be paid in installments. Sure shot chance of staying for long once you get sponsored. Worst case you and your partner can make good money in UK for 3 years. Check comments.

I’m responsible for the card & payments, so can I use it for personal and only submit reimbursements for work charges? And do you get to keep the points on a corporate card? TIA!
