H1b I797 Form

Recommended Posts



I require urgent suggestion in below matter -


My ex-employer X filled my H1b in 2012 and it got approved. I left the company before visa stamping.

I have the receipt number for my application. 

USCIS has sent me some information though G-639 form but it doesn't contain I797 approval. Information does contain I129 form.


My current employer is ready to file my H1b but they are asking for I797 form.


Could you please tell me if its necessary to provide I797 approval form. I do have my application receipt number and I129 approval forms.


Please let me know how to tackle this situation with my current employer and convince him to file H1b without I797.
