COS from H1 to H4-(Stamping in Tijuana)..?


Recommended Posts

Hello Experts,

Can i get H4 COS stamped at Tijuana Mexico?

I came to US on H4 (Stamped in India in 2012) and did COS (H4 to H1) and Got H1B Stamped in India in 2014).

Now i did COS from H1 to H4 and have my I-797 Approval.

Can i do COS Stamping in Mexico,Tijuana??


I sent email to Tijuana Embassy and they responded back saying that


"Thank you for your letter and your interest in applying for a visa to visit the United States. Indeed you are welcome to apply for the visa in the US Consulate in Tijuana whenever you have the opportunity to do so. 

U.S with one visa category and are seeking to return to the U.S. with a different visa category, applicants that have not fulfilled the requirements of their immigration status in the United States, having violated the terms of their visas or who have overstayed the time period authorized on their I-94 form; and Applicants who entered the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program are not allowed to process their visa application in any Consulate and/or Embassy in Mission Mexico"


​So my Question is does H1 and H4 Fall in same Visa Category??
