Hi All

I have got my H1B Stamped on June 5th in Hyderabad consulate,
Initial date of interview was OCT 13 2011.
My question is right now I dont have a Project . Should I be giving interview from India before going to the US.
If i get the Project should my H1B be ammended and at the port of entry what documents should I need?

soryy let me more clear, so you attened VISA interview in OCT and your VISA approved in June5 2012?

I think your employer has to take care of that ammenment. Yes. for sure you can take interviews from India.

My 2 coins, I thinks trying from USA is better and fast. I beleve you are a consulatant, I think you can some contract easily in 1-2 months.

Yes it took that long. I have a question to you . Now that my h1b is stamped I want to wait in india for a months time. Can i do that? Or will it be an issue at the port of entry?

The important thing is that the employer has to pay you while you are in the US on H1, even if you don't have a project.

You should play it smart and come over to work for your employer. Report and take it from there. Do not rock the boat initially and you will have options. If asked at the POE tell them you will be working for the employer. It would be even more prudent to discuss potential blowback with a Lawyer. There are some risks involved if you follow this advise.
