You need to have an original of I-797..

Initially you would be issue a copy of I797A which is an approval notice and does not have the I-94 on it later another copy would be I-797C which is confirmation and comes with I-94. These document would be sent out by USCIS to your attorney or employer.. so check with them and get the second copy which should be good.

Thanks all for inputs.


I checked with my attorney and he mentioned that, copy of I-797 is enough. Everything is in PIMS database  and all consulates have online access to all these information.


He suggested to go with copy of I-797.

No, original is not mandatory or requried.. Copy of I-797 is sufficient...
