I 797A not returned after H-1B visa interview

Hello All,

I had my H-1B visa interview at Delhi Embassy on 18th Dec, 2012. After the visa interview, the officer did not returned my I 797A and I forgot to ask for it as well. I wanted to know if it is the part of the procedure for the embassy to keep the I797 A with them or was it just a mistake. If I was supposed to get I 797A back after the interview, what is the procedure to get it back now?

Any help in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,


You’ll get it stapled to the passport.
