Maintaining Status

Maintain your H-1B status

Most steps you should take to maintain your H-1B status are basic. For example, you need to maintain a valid passport and a valid I-94 at all times, and you need to report any changes in your local address by completing Form AR-11 within 10 days of moving to a new apartment or house.

Changes in employment may also have a big effect on your H-1B status.

IU departments should contact us three months before an H-1B employee’s position changes or is close to ending. We will help guide the employee through the next steps.
