I am traveling using AP (original) . I lost both EAD and 797 (H1) originals in house fire. will they ask for original EAD or 797 receipts or photocopies will do?
Please advise and share your experience.

I have traveled many times on AP and not once was I asked about EAD/797. That said, there is no strict rules. Maybe you can keep a copy of the above documents and explain why you lost the originals.

Its at the discretion of the officer at POE.......I was asked for my EAD even when I had a valid H1B and last time when I had travelled on AP I was asked for my EAD......

why don't you apply for duplicate documents with the USCIS?

above is just my experience.......
