I797B can I go to a different consulate.


Recommended Posts



I am currently in USA. My H1B stamping on my passport is expired.

In the past when my current employer applied for H1B transfer I got I797B.

In that form I dont have an I94 attached. 

Also in that I797B its mentioned that consulate : Kolkata.


My employer told me to go out of country and get it stamped to get new I94.

My question is:

Can I go to any other contry (jamaica/canada/mexico) for visa stamping or

I have to go to Kolkata(India) as mentioned in my I797B form.

I am really confused because I have already booked an appointment in Jamaica.

Thinking whether to go or not.


Plase let me know if you have any pointers.


Thanking in advance for all your help and support.

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.
