Immigration Issues/H1 visa
I have got my H1 approval recently (September 2006). However, I would like to take sometime before I go for the stamping. How much time (maximum) will I get before I have to go in for the stamping?
If you were in the U.S. and changed status to H-1 you should have gotten a new I-94 on the bottom of your approval letter. If you did, you can start to work as of the validity date listed on the approval and you can go for stamping whenever your first trip out of the U.S. is.
