Hi Everyone ,

My H1b Petetion 2014 was approved recently and I have the below questions ...

Iam a Indian national working in Saudi Arabia since 2 yrs ..while filing the petetion i have selected Mumbai,India for Visa Stamping ..

I have sent an email to US Consulate ,Saudi asking whether I can get H1b stamp in Saudi and they replied saying I can attend for Visa Stamping in Saudi.

1. Now Can i change my stamping location from Mumbai to Saudi ,is there any process for doing this ???

2.Since my start date would be Oct 1st 2013,How early I can attend for Visa Stamping ???

Please provide your valuable answers ...

Thank you

Regards,

Mukesh

1.There is no process to change the consulate on 797, just book the appointment and show up. The consulate notification from I129/797 is just an FYI from USCIS that the consulate can expect your visa-case.

2.You can go for stamping anytime, but you can only enter US about 30 days before the start of employment

Good Luck !!!
