Documents needed while going for h1b visa stamping

Hi All,

Sorry if it sounds a dumb question,But i want to prepare myself and keep everything ready before hand.and correct me if im wrong…

I Got my H-1B Receipt Notice,My case is under initial review.

Came to know that we can stamp our visa not before 3 months in advance…ie earliest would be July 1st.

What are the list of documents that needs to be taken while going for stamping of h1b visa.

I went throught the below link,It states what are the things that needs to be done before stamping.Nothing is mentioned about the documents.

Also wil the company, courier me the original I797 Form ,or should i take the print out of scanned I 797 form, while going for Visa stamping.

Please Assist, as im completely new to this h1b world.

Warm Regards,


Yes, you will have to wait till July 1st to schedule VISA interview.

You don't need the original form I797, print out of the scanned copy is enough.
