    I have a valid H4 visa stamped on my passport expires Oct 2011. I also started working this year and got h1b approval notice. I am traveling to India after a month for a very short duration. Do I have to get h1b stamped on my passport or can I travel back on H4 visa as its still valid?

    Thanks for your reply.

    You will have to get an H1 visa stamped. Your I-94 will be issued based on the type of visa you have. If you don't get an H1 visa, you will be admitted under H4 and you won't be able to work. The I-94 issued last determines your status.

    Under the current immigration law, an alien may remain in the United States with H-1B status for up to six years. For the purpose of this limitation rule, all time previously spent in H-4 and/or L status in the United States will be counted against the six-year limit.
