View Full Version : First time Travel Overseas after 485 approval

Is it necessary to submit I-94 to airline while traveling overseas first time after 485 approval?
I assume 485 approval immediately voids non immigrant status (H1B) and hence I-94 as well.

Would that cause any issue while re-entry with physical green card if one does not submit I-94 to airline while departing.

Can anyone shed some light? or Has anyone traveled overseas without submitting I-94 and returned back without any issues with GC

Thanks,

This should not be an issue. Generally the air line ticketing staff issuing your boarding pass is responsible to take out your I-94. You can contact USCIS with the same question as to how you can return your I-94. You can let them know that it was not your fault.

Hope this helps.

Please surrender your i94 and tell them that you are free bird and can fly anywhere...

Hi

Recently returned to US first time after getting GC . the IO at the port of entry looked at my GC and took finger prints and put a seal with " valid till 1 month " . I wonder what that 1 month means.

did anybody come across similar situation ? BTW i retuned ny I-94 voluntorily while exiting.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks

Where exactly did he put a seal "valid till 1 month" . On your passport page?
or you are just being funny?

"valid till 1 month" does not even make grammatical sense. I call BS on this.

I am not kidding . in the passport he put a stamp in which under category wrote ARC . under that valid till wrote 1 month ( in words). I ckecked my wife's passport as well . same thing there .

May be i need to ask my attorney and see what this means .

It looks like ARC : Alien Registration Card (anohter name for GC)

Were you out of county for about a month? Did the officer asked you how long you were out of country?

It looks like every GC holder upon re-entry is annotated with ARC stamp in passport and until : means total months you were out of country?

Atleast based on quick web search.
