Yes you can


Yes you can make sure you show the immigration officer your I-797 when entering again so that he can give you the i94 date on your i797. Also make sure you carry proof of service with new co


M1 - That’s a very good point. Thank You! I’m planning to carry offer letter copy, employment verification and if I manage to get pay statements before I leave, then copies of those. That should be good right? I’ve also ordered for business cards so I’m hoping they come in, before I leave. Anything else you can think of? I don’t know if this is enough or over thinking it, but this immigration stuff has me nervous as hell.


... Just got a visa transfer & wondering if I need to get stamping done once again, with new employer’s approved petition, before I re-enter the country. Will have to plan my travels accordingly.

Thanks SC1!

Company ID card and generally HR can issue proof of employment letter. If they can get client later even better
