Question
Dear sir,

I am now in USA on F1 visa and I have a job offer from a company in USA nad they would file for my H1 visa. please let me know if I need to go to India for H1 visa stamping or can I get the stamping done in Mexico or Canada?

Thanks in advance,
With best wishes,
Venkat

Answer
There are no more H-1s until 10/07 and you can not apply until 4/07. Mexico and Canada do not have to agree to interview you and they usually say they are too busy with their own citizens. India has to interview you. You do not need a stamp if you stay instatus and get a change of status. You would then only have to get a stamp on your first trip out.

Regards,

Robert
