H1b Visa Stamping list of documents


Recommended Posts



I am yet to receive my H1b petition approval notice and expected to receive it by next week in India. I am planning to go for stamping in 3rd week of Dec.


What are all the documents(document checklist) do I need to carry to go for stamping?


From Employer and Employee perspective. I need this information as my employer doesn't know much of it, but they are able to provide necessary documents whatever I ask them.

1. Look at this website http://www.h1bwiki.com/h1-b-interview/

2. Go for a mock interview with a experience immigration lawyer. Don't worry about money. You can get stamping and get back the money you paid to lawyer in a day or may be less.
