My h1B was approved with premium processing in Jan-2021. i94 validity is till June-2024.
I didn’t receive i797A from USCIS (probably lost in transit when USCIS shipped). When enquired with my company attorneys, they said it’s not needed for stamping. Only i797C and company / attorneys supporting documentation is sufficient for Visa stamping.
Mine would be a dropbox, this time. Attorney mentioned visa officers would look in the PMS system for validity, etc for stamping.
Attorney didn’t file for i824 saying it’s not needed and it’s 8+ month time period for receiving the duplicate copy of i797A.
Kindly suggest if this is close to what anyone experienced.
Thank you, in Advance.
