First time h1b stamping in Australia

im on h1b visa in USA and planning to apply for Australian visit visa . Will I require a valid h1b stamping on my passport to apply for Australian visa ? or can i apply for Australia tourist visa with my approved i797 ?

If you are applying in Australian embassy in US, then you just need the proof of legal status in the US.


should i select work visa as my legal status when on i797 A . I only have approval notice . I don’t have h1b visa stamped on my passport.
