If you are searching for keys and answers to H-1B visa questions, here you will find a few details about H-1B visa approval notice and related documents.
For couple of articles related to H-1B visa, I’m seeing quite few comments about H-1B visa for 2008 applications was selected in lottery.
For long time H-1B visa status was showing "Case Received and Pending" and finally after a period of few months H-1B visa status for 2008 was changed to "Approved".
Also, there are lots of comments about
“I haven’t heard about H-1B Visa Rejections, when will I know”
“My status is still Case Received and Pending”
“Employer not responding to questions about my H-1B Visa”
H-1B visa approved, but no documents
Here is one of such comments;
My application got H-1B visa "APPROVED" status on June 4th, but ’till to date I have not received any documents.
Whenever I call up my consultancy, they say that I will get them but haven’t see anything ’till now.
A bit frustrating and worried now. Is it possible that we have such cases where there is a delay in sending the documents?
I-797 Approval Notice
After H-1B visa petitions are approved, USCIS will send I-797A or I-797B or I-797C [difference between I-797A, I-797B and I-797C] approval notice to the attorney who have filed your H-1B visa application.
An H-1B visa approval notice will be usually sent within 1 week of H-1B visa petition approval.
In your case, within June the 12th, your employer’s attorney should have received your documents and the attorney will forward the H-1B visa approval notice, along with labor applications.
H-1B Visa Stamping documents
To get an H-1B visa stamped from the U.S. consulate, you will need the original H-1B Visa Approval notice and other related documents. So I think that all the documents should be with your employer.
However, there is nothing you can do if your employer doesn’t send the documents to you.
You can go for H-1B visa stamping only after you get the documents from your employer. Unfortunately, there is no way to trace the documents.
