H1B Approved but did not receive approval notice

Recommended Posts

Hello, my employer filed for H1B petition in Dec 2018 and got approved in Apr 2019. Attorneys mentioned they did not get the Approved I-797 petition and after couple of months in July they have raised a USCIS Inquiry. Attorney mentioned they are still awaiting response received from USCIS on this inquiry and in parallel they filed for I-824 replacement copy in Nov 2019 and they did not receive receipt notice for this application yet. Its been more than 7 months since the petition got approved but i do not have the approval notice to travel out of country. Please let me know what are the options available in this case.

I know how you might have felt. File a request under FOIA which might get you a copy of the original petition for now. It might take 2-3 months for it to be processed. 

Make sure you follow up on the I-824 for a replacement copy. Its always best to have a copy for future use.

This has been a very frustrating experience. Thank you very much for the response.

Please let me know if this copy of original petition can be used for Visa stamping out of country? 

Thank you.
