Dear Friends,
My H1B visa extension petition is approved 2 weeks earlier and my employer received only the confirmation email of approved notice from USCIS. Currently I am in very urgent need to travel to India. I would like to know if travelling back to India without having approved 797 document is fine or do we need to wait till I received approved document in hand.

Please kindly help me!!

You can travel to India but to re-enter you would need your new I797.

Yes, your employer/attorney could ask for one from USCIS by paying appropriate fee.
