Is it mandatory to travel with original i797 or the soft copy is fine to show in port of entry


Recommended Posts


I have transferred my H1 from Employer A to Employer B.I was placed in a position by Employer B and client wants me to join in next 4 days.My transfer with Employer B was approved ( in premium processing ) couple of days back. My questions are:

1. How many days does it take for Employer to receive Hard copy of approval (i797)

2. Can I travel to US with soft copy print of i-797 ?

3. What are the challenges I might face in port of entry and how to answer the challenging questions (if any)?

Please advise.

Appreciate your support and time.
