Is it mandatory to carry H4 copy if passport has valid visa


Recommended Posts

This year I got my H1B approval, I and my wife went to Visa interview and got visa stamped, and I came back to USA a month ago, and started working.


My wife is planning to join with me in Feb, where my wife do not have H4 copy, as it was not filed by my employer.


When I have requested the copy of H4, my employer told me that, as my wife had valid visa stamping, she can travel with my approved I797 copy, and no need of H4 copy.


Is what my employer told me correct? Is it safe to travel with H4 Copy and with valid Visa stamping and copy of my approved I797? 


Please suggest.


Thank you in advance!!
