Will I receive I797A with I94 or I797B without I94?

Hi @Anil.Gupta

My attorneys got the following approval email

Receipt Number: Case receipt number
Date I-907 Received: 08/20/2020
Date Approved: 8/27/2020 8:19:25 PM
Petitioner: My employer name
Number of Workers: 1
Classification: H1B
Beneficiary: My name
Beneficiary Country of Citizenship: India
Classification sought: H1B
Starting Validity Date: 04/24/2020
Ending Validity Date: 04/21/2023
Consulate notified (if applicable):
I-94 # (if applicable): My current I94 number
Occupation/Job Code: 030

Does the above mean that I797A will be issued WITH the I94 attached ? What are the chances of I797B without I94 ?

Thanks in advance!

@Anil.Gupta or anyone: can you please help here ?

I797A . MayI know why you think that i797B will be issued ?

@Suresh_Kumar_Patel thanks for the reply.

I had a Rfe on this case which was questioning my status. But there was no violation whatsoever in status and we replied to the rfe with all the required details.

So I was wondering if we could tell from the email that i797A will be issued or I797B will be issued ?

@Anil.Gupta do you have any thoughts here ? Thanks

Can someone pls advise ?

Normally, when i94 number is included, you do get the approval with extension of status.

Thanks a lot for confirming sir

@shrek1987 I’m in a similar situation now. Can you please confirm whether you received I797A or B?

Thanks a lot for confirming…Any idea, when will we receive the approval hard copy after online case status was updated to Approved?

Not sure. Might take 1-2 weeks since it’s holiday season etc

Got it, thanks for your time :slight_smile:
