  • H4 to H1 COS - I797

    Hello Experts,

    I came to US on H4. My H1 petition got approved after coming to US(USCIS generated I797B for the same).

    I have applied for change of status and it got approved(USCIS generated I797A for COS). My question is whether USCIS will take back the original I797B and will provide I797A or will it return both I797A and I797B?

    My employer provided only I797A to me. Do I need to request for I797B also?

    Thanks,
    Rahul

    I797A is enough. Upon approval you must start working and get paid by your employer.

    This is my opinion not legal advice.

      Thanks for your reply.

      If I apply for H1 transfer or if I go back to India for attending visa interview process, do I need to have both I797A & I797B or I797A alone is sufficient?

      Thanks,
      Rahul

        I797A is enough along with other supporting documents.

          May I know what other supporting documents means?
