Is the original hard copy of "approval notice" required for the visa interview in India?

Hello All,

My petiotn has got approved. I am in India.

Question - is it required to carry the original hard copy of “approval notice” (form I-797) for visa interview or I can carry scan copy printout of “approval notice”

Please help urgently…

Thank you!


During the visa interview time, you can give the photo copy to the interviewer along with the required documentation when ever they asks. If specifically they asks for approved 797 petition original copy, you won’t be having other option by that time. I would recommend to carry original copy of 797 petition during the interview time to avoid unexpected risks.
