  • H1b visa stamping question

    Hi

    I am currently on CAP GAP and going to India for H1B stamping. I would appreciate if anyone can answer the following questions for me:

    1) Do I need to surrender the I94 attached to my I797 at the airport? I still have the white I94 in my passport from early 2012.
    2) I have a speeding ticket from last year (just a normal citation) does that affect anything in my interview? There is a question in DS 160 which asks "have you ever been arrested or convicted"; i have never been arrested or fingerprinted, but does the ticket count as a "conviction" or just a violation? Should my answer be "no" or "yes" ? I paid the ticket in full when I got it so I doubt if it affects anything.

    Thank you

        1. Yes. Unless you are going to Canada, Mexico or other contiguous territory, you must relinquish the I-94.
        2. The answer can be “no”.

            The airline personnel at the check in windows at the airport would take your i-94

                    make sure you submit the i-94 to the airline personnel. no one will bother to ask you for it. just makes it easier for them to keep track. on the other hand border personnel update i-94 records on their own for everyone leaving via a commercial airliner
