I was on L1-B from xyz company and company B applied for my L1 to H1 transfer.
While the visa approval was under process I had to travel back to India.
Now I am in India and need to go for H1 stamping(approved while I was in India). My new employer never received I797 A for my case and has sent me only the courtesy copy I797 C.
As getting a new I797A can take 3 or more months, my new employer is asking to go for stamping interview with I 797C only. The attorney says tell the VO that the I797A was not received at all.
Is it advisable or more over can I even go to Delhi consulate for stamping with I797 C?
Kindly help as I am in a fix and my interview is scheduled for 27th Jan 2012.
