Is it safe to get first H1b visa stamped outside India? in H1B : General Posted October 6, 2021 · Report reply On the same topic I'm living outside India for 13 yrs now and visit India once or twice a year, but not able to visit since 2 years now. My approved H1 has Permanent address listed as my New Mumbai address and Consulate specified as Mumbai for the processing. Can I get my H1B stamped at my overseas location - where I'm residing ? I may not be able to travel to India to see my family before I move to US, so I may need to fly out from here to US. kindly advice.
