H1b renewal stamping in Sweden


Recommended Posts

Hi friends,


I completed my Masters in 2007 and got my h1b in 2008. I got my first f1-h1b stamping in India in Dec 2009 with full finger prints. In Aug 2011 I got my 1st extension but didn't travel outside US with this 1st extension. In december my 2nd extension on i140 until Dec 2016.

I am same employer and same client right from the beginning. 

Now I am thinking of Visiting my close friends in Sweden for a vacation and returning back to India. I have no plans to go India for next one year as my family will be visiting US in this July.

I have all paystubs,W2s, client letter and  every required document.


Now my question is can I get my stamping in Stockholm while Visiting Sweden and return back to US?

It is risky to go to the Us consulate in Stockholm as they don't really consider doing an H1B stamping if you are not a resident of Sweden and you might be given a 221G for administrative clearance. My advice is to go with a valid US visa stamped  in either mexico or candidate or Jamaica and then travel.
