Urgent: Change of employer Approved while outside US but no I797 yet.


Recommended Posts

I am an employee of Company A. Company B initiated change of employer petition while I was travelling abroad. For some reason there have been subsequent delays in my H1B transfer due to which I haven't received I797 form on time, even though my H1B change of employer petition is approved via premium processing. My flight is due next week, and I have to report to company A.

Now I have two choices:
1. Enter US using valid company A H1B visa stamp, and company A I797 from last year. 
2. Reschedule my trip by a week, and enter US using valid company A H1B visa stamp and company B I797.

Is choice "1" possible? What could the consequences be? Is choice "2" my only valid option?
