  • DS-160 with 2 I797A from same employer.

    Hi All,

    I am planning for vacation to India in June 2014.
    My Current H1(i797A) expires on 09/08/2014. Applied for H1 extension last month. Received Approval i797A starting from 09/09/2014 - 09/08/2017.

    So, in a nutshell
    i have 2 i797A from same employer.
    <a>wac-xx , Valid from 09/09/2011 to 09/08/2014
    <b>wac-yy , Valid from 09/09/2014 to 09/08/2017. (Extension Approved)

    1.>In the DS160, i can provide only 1 i797A receipt. Which one should go in there.
    2.>If i put the <a>, there are chances that i get visa stamping for period until 09/08/2014, which means i will need to do a H1 extension again after entering the US.
    3.>If i put the <b>, there is a chance that i get visa stamping from its date, which means i might get stuck in india between June 2014 until 09/08/14, until the date of <b> i797A becomes active.
    4.>Should i postpone the trip until the <b> i797 takes effect.?

    This is quite confusing to me.
    Please help me out.
