Default H1-B Stamping New passport in Lieu of lost passport

It was a nightmare for few weeks but, long story short...I got my new passport after the Embassy cannot find my original I sent for renewal. Please let me know if I need to get it stamped within any timeframe. My current I-797 expires MAY 2010. I have an approved 140 and EAD but my attourney suggested to stay on H1B.

Appreciate your feedback and help in this matter.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

You dont need a visa stamp on your new passport unless you want to use it to re-enter US when you travel. There is no time line associated with getting a visa stamp. You just need to make sure you keep extending your H1 status and get an I-94 with the extension approval. If you have an AP you can use it for re-entering and still can continue working on H1 for the same employer. Else, when you travel the next time, you can setup a visa appointment and get H1 stamped on your new passport.
