Thank you for the Post, @ Ajaykumar. I got my 4th H1B extension approved yesterday. I need to travel to India Hyderabad this month. My employer suggested me to wait for 1 or 2 months before going for stamping, so that Kentucky database is updated with my case (PIMS verification) just in case its not updated there is a risk of getting 221G. 

How long did you wait after getting visa before going for stamping?

Hi Kalyan,

I went to stamping after 13 months of intial approval and 5 months of my amendmemt approval. as your employer said PIMS database will contain our information, but i am not sure how long will take that PIMS to get updated. Because i saw lot of people attended h1b interview and approvals on same day i attended on 31st oct. those people got their h1 approved recently and start date is 10/01/2016.

I suggest take more suggestions from people and better talk to attorney of your company who will complete the paper work.
