Iam from India,Chennai and currently residing in Dubai with my wife
I applied for H1B visa through an employer in USA on April 2013 and my petition is approved in July 2013
My employer is not so aware of the formalities in India to get my visa stamped and they wanted to manage by myself, however they would mail me all the documents.
Iam planning for a vacation to india in Nov 2013 and i would like to have H1B stamped for me and H4 stamped for my wife. My tentative start date in USA is Jan 2014.
Is stamping starts only from Oct 2013? or i can schedule my interview prior to that also?
Please guide me all the steps for h1b and h4 and also i would like to get it stamped only in chennai which is my hometown
