H1B visa re-stamping after amendment approval


This question might seem redundant but there is slight difference in my case and neither saw answers in some other blogs

I recently got H1-B amendment approval for the following without changing the employer:1 - Client Change2 - Role Change (Promotion)3 - Location ChangeBoth my previous I797 and new I797 is valid till 2018.Do I still require visa stamping to re-enter US after amendment approval?



No new visa stamping is required as long as the previous visa stamp is valid and has not expired.

Thank you Saurabh! And yes, previous visa is valid till 2018.


Hi - I am in a similar situation. My visa is valid until Sept 2021, but my amendment approved and the new I-797A is valid until Oct 2022. So do I need a re-stamping?
