    PR Landing experience and used AVR in return

    I believe your status and i94 date would be updated to reflect what's on your latest documents-i20 or i797. You can go through avr as many times as you like.

    Automatic Visa Revalidation (AVR) to enter USA

    1. Not a problem....as long as the i94 is valid you should be good to go 2. No. I had done this because I wanted to be absolutely sure but now that I know I can tell you it's not needed. You may still want to do it for peace of mind. Nothing more. 3. You can go for stamping in Canada...although...

    Automatic Visa Revalidation (AVR) to enter USA

    Yes my i797 says H1 and I did show it to the officer who confirmed that I am not on F1 anymore and that in June 2019 I changed to H1. He also confirmed the employer name but when I came home and checked i94 online it still said class of admission as F1. Not sure what's going on here. :(

    Automatic Visa Revalidation (AVR) to enter USA

    What about the class of admission? My last visa is a F1 Visa but in June 2019 I changed status to H1. I don't have a H1 stamp yet. The i94 that I got issued at border says class of admission as F1. Shouldn't that have been updated to H1?
