Do you need the original i797 for the H1B interview? My document is still in transit and I have my visa interview in a couple of days. I am thinking of taking the copy of the form, but really worried.

Got my visa approved. Went to the consulate with the copy of i797 and luckily even the officer did not asked for the original. I believe they just need to validate the number against their database.

You have to keep all the originals for the interview. They might give you a 221G slip and ask to schedule another interview.

You need the original I797! I just got my visa stamped, the interviewed asked for the “original” one specifically.

I am on my 3rd H1B company and joined recently. The current employer is someone whom I have worked for before. If I get a better offer in the upcoming months, I would take it.

How important it is to have a customized EVL and signature of the manager?

I'm sorry if this has been talked about before. Is it true that once you start the perm process you are stuck with your company till you get a green card? If you want to switch in the middle of the process do you have to start with perm all over again? I've tried to read about this but there is so much confusing info.
