Sample Receipt of Approved I-797A Notice of Action for H-1B Visa

Sample Receipt of Approved I-797A Notice of Action for H-1B Visa

Once an H-1B visa petition is approved by USCIS, an I-797C Notice of Action is mailed to the employer, which is considered a courtesy copy and is printed on regular white paper.

Additionally, an I-797A Notice of Action is typically mailed to the attorney of record. It is printed on colored paper with security features, and it has an extended Form I-94 towards the bottom of the document. This document is very important to the H-1B visa holder.

Therefore, whenever the employer gets the document from the attorney, they should hand it over to the employee and make sure to get a signed receipt from the employee that the employee did indeed receive it.
