Wrong DOB on Fresh H1 approval

Hi Team


We have received the Fresh H1 approval.  However, the passport that was filed with my application had my DOB incorrectly listed as August 3, 1983.  Now i have  received a new passport which reflects the DOB correctly as July 3, 1983.  Since the old passport was filed with this application, the approval I797 has the incorrect DOB listed.  In addition to the DOB needing to be corrected to July 3, 1983, the passport number has also changed.  I have contacted the USCIS to see if they can correct the DOB on the approval based on the new passport. They have replied stating they have entered the details based on the information provided by the passport and not going to correct.


Since we have the wrong DOB printed on Visa receipt, we were concerned to proceed further  as it carries a risk. Could we go ahead for amendment. What would be the cost and timelines associated with the process. Kindly advise us on the future course of action.


Thanks in anticipation.
