For me it's looks good enough of above checklist for H1-B renewal.

Please make sure you carry the Vendor and Client letter which had a valid of within a Month.

Please clarify difference 

1) Vendor letter and Contract between petitioner and vendor?

2) financial statements and Bank Statements ?

3) W2’s and Tax Returns?

Hi Joe

I dont have a Employe - Client - Vendor Model, I am a Fulltime Employee


1) If you are contacting from a vendor please do carry anytype of agreements between your Direct employer and the Client you work for.

2) Regarding Financial Statements I meant like Bank montly slips, Tax returns from bank or other sources etc.

(again these are just good to carry not mandatory)

3) W2 is the year end Pay recipt you get from your Employer and Tax returns are the ones you get back(from IRS)
