Has anybody re-entered US using a photocopy of approved I797 for H1b
I have an H1 transfer already filed which i expect to complete in the next 10-12 days and I have concrete plans to travel outside of US after 2 weeks. I am confident that a decision on my H1 would have already been made before I leave US but it is likely there might not be enough time to get the original I797 (in case of approval) before I leave.
I am still with my current employer ( also when i return ) and have a passport stamp and original I797 of my current H1 valid, so re-entering is not an issue. But for I94 purposes will a photocopy of my new I797 work ? Any examples?
