Consulate notified issue

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

I need some help regarding my H1B visa stamping. My I-129 petition is approved and the consulate notified on the approval is London as I was working there. However, I now have plans to travel back to my home country India. Can I go for the visa interview in Mumbai instead of the notified consulate which is London?

Are there any risks associated with this?

Thanks,

Vivek

As far as I know, H1b stamping can be done anywhere regardless of uscis notification. Please let me know if i'm wrong here.

Appreciate the response. Should i assume is it safe to attend interview in Mumbai than London. Whats the importance of "Consular Notification". I have to be absolutely sure on this as I won't be returning to London once I leave. Do I have to seek permission from Mumbai consulate before doing so?

The notification is not a punishment. You can get the visa in India. They will check the PIMS system to verify your H1 in any case.
