    Answered . I'd ask your employer why it's necessary for you to have your visa stamped in your passport when it's your I-94 (issued by CIS) that 1) controls your stay in the U.S. and 2) provides your employment authorization for purposes of their I-9 compliance. Unless there is an international travel requirement for you employment, I don't see why the stamping is necessary.
