Default Do i need an active visa for the match?

hello everyone ..
i need your help please .. i am an IMG and i am going to apply for the 2016 match

the point that is i have currently a b1 visa which will expire soon one month from now
so by the time i am going to apply for the match i am not going to have an active visa,,
is that ok ? or it's required to have an active visa to enter the match?

and regarding the interviews if i had some ,, do the Eras or any other formal authority provide me with Visa litter that help me for applying to a new ViSA (i mean do they provide me with any official paper that i can give to the US embassy to strengthen my new visa application)?

thanx in advance
