My L1A petition expires in December 2024. When I last entered the U.S., however, I was granted an I-94 valid through September 2025. Can I continue working through that expiration date?


It appears that this I-94 was issued in error. If you discover a CBP error – even one that appears to be in your favor – you generally should contact CBP to get it corrected.

Note that CBP has the discretion to admit an L-1 worker for up to 10 days beyond the petition expiration date; but, even then, the person cannot work during the 10-day grace period. (05.Jun.2024)
