H1B Visa extension stamping outside India

Recommended Posts

Here is my situation.


I 'm in US since 2007

2009 till 2013: I worked for company A. They did my green card process and have I140 approved with them

2013 till 2014 for 5 months, I worked for company B. After joining they told me that they don't have plans to do my GC

2014 Feb till date I work for Company A again. They had a position vacant and they re-hired me. They didn't revoke my I140 so I'm back in GC queue now.

Recently my company sold their IT division and created a new company.Now I'm part of the new company. My attorney said we dont need to re-file H1B again for new company. He mentioned that I just need to show the sale document during stamping . As the new company has taken over my H1B, I don't need to do any additional process.

More over I work remotely.


I'm working for US based company. So, there is no issue with the documentation. I can provide any document which the visa officer asks.


Given this situation. I plan to do stamping in Mexico or Canada.   Do you guys see any issues in getting stamping outside India given this situation ?

When you were rehired was a cap exempt H1B petition was filed and approved?

Did you ever had a H1B visa stamped in your passport? Because if you never had you cannot go to Mexico but can go to Canada.

Having said that home country is the best option for visa stamping.
