Hope you are doing well. Thanks for helping me with my question.
I wanted to share a few concerns that I had regarding my case and would really appreciate if you can give some advice.
Following are the highlights of my situation,
My most recent job ended in July 2015 and I have not been working since then.
Due to personal reasons I had to travel back to India and currently residing in India since July 2015. My start date for new employment is fixed for August 31st 2015 and I am planning to travel back to US on August 28th 2015 to start working.
Problem for me here is that I need to report to work on August 31st (My employer is looking for me to join ASAP and hence this urgency) with my H1-B transfer still in progress and I do not have a I797 approval notice in hand. I have the offer letter and the approved LCA from my employer at this time.
If I plan to travel back to US on Aug. 28th , Will there be any problem ? What kind of documents do I need to carry if I do not have a I797 petition ?
Can I use my previous employer's valid I797 petition ?
Hoping to get a response from you soon.
