I've recently read and heard about prudential visa revocations for DUI. "The Visa Office implemented the requirement for consular officers to prudentially
revoke nonimmigrant visas for DUI arrests subsequent to visa issuance because
driving under the influence is indicative of a possible INA 212(a)(1)(A)(iii)
ineligibility for a possible physical or mental disorder with associated harmful
I've also read in forums that should a visa be revoked under such a circumstance and an individual is in the US, they are legally in status until their i94 end-date.
A friend of mine is in the below scenario:
- Visa revoked due to DUI
- i94 end date in september 2016
- h1b valid until Dec 2017
It is unclear how visa could be revoked at this point if he is inside the U.S. You should bring this to an attorney to actually see such a revocation if it actually exists.
The answer given here is not complete and based only on the information given in the question. The answer is general in nature as a full consultation would be required in order to give a complete consultation. The answer should not be relied upon as the only possible solution.
Your friend remains in valid status until the date on his I-94.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
