Question Transit visa in Frankfurt, Germany

Hi,
My wife's H4 visa got expired in jan 2008 and I renewed her I-94 and I-94 got extended till 2010.
Next week she is travelling back to India throgh Lufthansa airlines from portland to Frankfurt to Chennai. Some people are telling that getting transit visa in Frankfurt airport is difficult if visa stamping got expired eventhough you have valid I94. Is it correct?

I have two questions here.
1 Is really transit visa required, as just she needs to catch another flight in other terminal in the same airport?
2. If transit visa required will it be problem if her visa stamping got expired ( But she has vaild I797 and I-94 documents ).

Please help me by answeringthese questions.

Regards,
Brahma Reddy

Default prince - a correction.

hi prince,
regarding ur post, there is a correction.

holding an Approval notice alone is NOT a valid reason to bypass the transit visa in germany.

holding a valid visa or Adv parole is good . but not just an appr notice.


thanks

Default A similar question on traveling

Dear Friends:
I also have a similar question on traveling abroad for 4 weeks with my 485 pending.
As you all know that when we applied our 485 AOS (EB-based) we had to also submit the copy of our latest 1-94 card (which I did). Now that I am leaving the US, I will be handing over the original 1-94 at the port of exit (a copy of which was submitted with the 485 application). Then when returing, I will be receiving another new 1-94. So my questions:

(a) Will I have to re-send the INS another copy of my new 1-94 when I return to the US (b) also might surrendering the old 1-94 and getting new one confuse my 485 records with the INS (c) Finally, do any of you know of anyone who with 485 pending, a valid H1B visa, and no Advanced Parole has had any problems returning back to the US?

Please advise, and that would be so appreciated. Regards.
