thankyou for taking care.

Answer
Hi,

When you send I-94 back to the USCIS for correction, do not send the original I-94; send only a copy. It will take about 2 or 3 months for the error to be corrected by the USCIS.

You will be able to travel without any problem whether or not the birthdate on the I-94 is correct or not. When applying for the H-4 visa at the Consulate abroad, if you do not have corrected I-94 by that time you should still be issued a visa with the correct birthdate if you point out to the Consulate officer that the I-94 has incorrect birthdate.
