Recent feedback from our group members/our clients from Laredo Texas Border

“We went to Laredo TX today(Jan 14th 2022) morning and got i-94 extension/renewal for my wife for 1 year. My h4 and H4 EAD expiring in Feb 2022. My husband’s I797a approved via premium processing for 3 years.

We still have valid valid H4 visa / i-94 for another month so the officers weren’t sure why we wanted it. We had to explain the current situation on delay in h4 approval and how getting new i-94 helps extend job. and gave 1 yr extension for my wife”
We went to Laredo TX on Jan14th and got i-94 extension for 1 year. I still have valid i-94 for another month so the officers weren’t sure why we wanted it. I had to explain the current situation on delay in h4 approval and how getting new i-94 helps extend job.He also asked why we traveled all the way to Laredo from NJ instead of going to Canada. The officers were very courteous. They took good 20 to 30 mins to discuss among themselves about our cases.The officers finally gave 1 yr extension on i-94.

H4 EAD & L2 EAD Regulations Information

Scenario B) You have expired H4 visa stamped in your passport / I-94 expired, Your spouse related I-79A aprovej applied for H4 extension through USCIS. It’s taking more time than expected. You need new visa stamping in your passport & send that visa copy to USCIS to extend your H4 EAD.

Few clients tried with scenario B option at Laredo Texas border & Brownsville Texas border & CBP officers did not accept to do i-94 renewal as their H4 visa was expired.

Only solution for scenario B) will be to apply for Emergency appointment in Mexico locations like Nuevo laredo or Tijuana, get your H4 visa stamped based on your spouse related I-797A extension which is already approved through USCIS & send that visa copy to renew your H4 or L2 EAD very soon.

Hello Consulate officer 

Subject : Requesting Emergency appointment based on working for Healthcare /supporting frontline workers & also possibility of my job loss & Financial loss for my family due to lack of my H4 visa beyond Feb 8th 2022 (due to uscis delay in extending H4 )  

My name is xxxxxx. I am on H4 visa in USA and I hold a valid H4-EAD expiring Feb.07.2022

I am requesting an emergency visa appointment because,

1. I work in Healthcare IT insurance applications at xxxxx. I write automation scripts which is fundamental for web applications deployed in customer facing live environment.

2. Since my H4-EAD is expiring by Feb.07, 2022 – I will have to quit the job if my H4 stamping is not done. If I could get an appointment before Feb.04, 2022 – I could submit my H4 visa stamping  & i-94 to autoextend my H4-EAD. This will help me to keep my job and support xxxx applications. If my H4 expires and if I face job loss, this will cause severe financial loss to our family affecting financial commitments like mortgage and loans.

Requesting you kindly to provide me with emergency appointment for my visa stamping that will really help me & my family
