Documents needed for entering at POE H1B

Hi Everyone,

I have a valid H1B visa and I797. I need to leave the US for some work briefly. When i return what documents do I need. Also on leaving do I need to carry an IRS sailing permit ? I just wanted to clarify with people who have regularly traveled in and out of the US on the H1 visa


When returning to US, it is nice to carry:

  • passport with unexpired stamped visa

  • 797

  • a letter from the employer stating their intent for continuing employment

  • employer and immediate manager’s contact details

  • recent payslips
