I am currently on h1 Visa and for some reason my license is not tied to my Visa expiry. I get it for a period of 5 years at a time. When I apply for a Real ID, I would need to provide my passport, visa and i94 copy. Would the validity of the Real ID get tied to my Visa now or will it be provided till my original license expiry?
Anyone in this scenario and have gotten a Real ID ? This is for CA state, if it makes a difference.
