    For H1b Transfer, Do we need I797 A or I797 C ?

    My case - I got H1B extension through my I140 approval. I am in my 5th year. I want to transfer my H1B and wants to retain priority date too.. I want to change my employer, is I 797 A a mandatory document ? As I got I797 C which has following at the top but NO I94 at the end:

    Notice TYpe: Approval Notlce
    Valid from 2016 to 2018
    Consulate:



    Thanks

    Doesn't matter. The consulate will use the PIMS copy.
