How long does USCIS take to issue I797 after AAO sustains the appeal?

Recommended Posts


I am currently working on H4 EAD. My employer had applied for my H1B in 09/2018 and it got denied. My employer appealed to the AAO and I just got informed that the appeal was sustained. i.e. AAO has ordered USCIS to approve the H1B petition. I am traveling out of the country in about a month and I would like to know how long USCIS typically takes to issue I797. Also, is there anyway to expedite this? 

In case if I don't get I797 from USCIS before I leave the country, can I go for H4 Visa stamping? What will happen to my H1B petition?
