H1B visa stamping without I-797B copy

Recommended Posts

Hello, my H1B petition was approved in 2020 and the case status on USCIS website says "approved". But my lawyer/company did not receive the I-797B approval notice. It's been 9+ months now. We have filed I-824 for a duplicate approval notice and the current processing time is showing as 6 months to 89 months. Since it may take such a long time to get the duplicate approval, can I go for visa stamping with Receipt number notice (I-797C) and I-129 & I-824 receipt notice? Please advise.

If this H1b was processed in premium processing, your attorney/company would have received an email stating your approval as well as I94 number and expiry date.  Employer may also have received a courtesy copy from USCIS of your approval.

In case you have an urgent visit to India, I guess you would have to try all your options.  Along with the above mentioned documents, also take screen shot or print out of case status on USCIS website which says approved, as well as a client letter.
