USCIS has begun issuing I-797A, Notice of Action Approval Notices containing inconsistent validity periods on the face of the document. Specifically, the top portion of the I-797A approval notices lists the approved visa classification (e.g., H-1B) and the authorized validity period of that visa classification (e.g., from Oct. 1, 2017, to Sept. 11, 2020). The bottom portion of the approval notice, containing Form I-94, Arrival-Departure Records, now lists different validity periods – generally an additional 10 days of validity in comparison to the validity dates listed on the top of the approval notice (e.g., from Oct. 1, 2017, to Sept. 21, 2020). This change in the approval notices is causing confusion for both employers and employees.

USCIS is printing different dates on the top and bottom of the approval notice in order to convey information on different topics. The validity dates on the top portion of the approval notice reflect the dates the individual is allowed to work in the United States. The validity dates on the bottom portion of the approval notice reflect the dates the individual is allowed to stay in the United States.
