Has anyone traveled / entered the US on a photocopy of their I-797 approval notice for the H1B? Lawyers mailed me the original via USPS,- USPS has either lost it or will deliver next, but my flight back home is tomorrow. Trying to attend a family event so really don’t want to delay my flight and miss it, but also don’t want to jeopardize re-entry to the US… for context, will be flying through O’Hare in Chicago
