Is it safe to file H1 B transfer in Consular Processing?

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon,

Here is my scenario. Kindly read and help me with your past experiences / knowledge.

·         My H1 B visa and I-94 expired through my current employer as on 7/15/2019.  

·         Filed H1, 2nd extension and got RFE (end client didn’t give the client letter), which I need to respond by Oct 1st, 2019. Currently in US.

·         Currently working for a client, through EVC (Employer-Prime Vendor-Client) Model.

·         Now, Trying to transfer my H1 to the Prime Vendor (PV) and they are filing under consular processing.



1.       What are my chances of getting H1 B approved through Consular Processing via Prime Vendor (PV)?

2.       Once H1 approved through PV, Which is the best country (Mexico / Canada) for H1 B stamping and re-enter US?

3.       Do I need to get Canadian / Mexican visa to enter into their country for H1 Visa stamping? Remember my I-94 got expired already.

4.       Is it advisable to go for H1 B stamping with dependents (on H4)?

5.       What are my chances of getting H1 B approved?

6.       What all the documentation I need to carry?


Any help is greatly appreciated.


Thank you
