    Visa Stamping in Canada - DS160 Question

    Yes, you can attend without any issues. Just carry new DS160 to consulate, Once they scan your new ds160, their system will be updated with your latest details
  2. FYI, After getting consular petition approved, It's not mandatory to go the same location to attend visa interview as mentioned in your approval notification. I have seen many folks who got approved through consular petition (got I-797B) & went to different consulate other than mentioned in the approval notice. Contact me if you need further details, i can connect you with similar folks. GoodLuck !!!

    Emergency Travel to India on H1B

    Sorry to hear that, If this is not her 1st time h1b visa stamping in her passport, If she needs visa renewal stamping. Contact me, let me see what i can help. There might be a possibility to get dates sooner in Mexico (usually within a week) / Also there might be a possibility to request Expedited appointment too sometimes based on her current situation. For other folks, If you expect any such situations based on parents age / health etc., I strongly recommend folks to get the stamping(visa renewal) process done before either at one of the neighboring countries (either canada or mexico), instead of waiting for an Emergency to kick in to travel to home country & At that point of time ....finding visa dates become a hurdle for travel.

    Stamping H1 in canada for different employer

    seems like you are talking about H1B transfer (Please be clear ) As long as you have I-797A approved for new employer by USCIS, you are good to leave current employer A to move to Employer B. You don't need visa stamping for Employer B unless there is a need for out of country travel. As long as you have approved I-797A petition from Employer B, you can use those details while attending visa interview (now or future) If you still need more clarification / have any questions, please feel free to drop an email to my username

    Has anyone been to Merida, MX for visa stamping?

    Seems Merida does not accept visa interview's for TCN's - Third Country Nationals. I have seen the same message everytime i check for dates at Merida" There are no available appointments at the selected location. Please try again later." You can attend other locations in Mexico for visa interview like Mexico City, Nogales, Neuvo Laredo, Matamoros etc., Refer below link to know detailed steps about visa dates booking etc., US Visa Interview Appointment Booking Steps - Detailed Information

Good Luck !!!
  14. Your pro-active question at this early stage of H1B is really commendable. This is how you can deal this situation. You can travel to India in May 2019 (As you can't renew your passport until July 2020 - 1 year before your passport expiry), when you go for stamping, you will get visa stamp on your passport as per your I-797 validity.(July 2021) While coming back , you will get I-94 stamped on your passport by POE / CBP officer until July 2021 (Until passport validity Only). That 2 months short duration of I-94 won't impact your work authorization, but you should get your I-94 renewal done after July 2021. I-94 renewal can happen in below ways, Once you renew your passport after you come back (After July 2019), 1) If you travel out of country for vacation etc., before July 2021, while coming back, your I-94 will be automatically renewed until your I-797 validity by POE/CBP officers. 2) Else you can go to any border POE locations / CBP offices around June or July 2021 (near canada or mexico to get I-94 renewal done until Sep 2021) - This link can give you some info about that process : Renewing I-94 at Border POE - CBP locations 3) If you get your extension of H1B before Sep 2021 & travel out of country for any vacation etc., or go to the border POE/CBP locations before July 2021, while coming back you will get new I-94 until that new petition validity. Good Luck !!!

    H1B renewal Tijuana, Mexico, its a breeze.

    1. Yes, Tijuana Consulate allows minors to accompany along with parents to US consulate. 2. If you have valid US or Canada or Japan or Shenghen visa - you don't need to take mexican visa again. 4. You can choose the consulates that are near to US Consulate - Hampton Inn is near by. They also run shuttles every hour or so to the border. Good Luck !!!
