H1B I-797B valid from 2015 to 2018, not yet appeared for stamping. What is the time by which stamping needs to be done ?


I have approval notice H1B I-797B valid from 1-Oct-2015 to 3-Sep-2018. But i’ve not appeared for Visa interview (stamping). Is there any timeline by which i have to appear for visa stamping ?

Please help me on this.

Thanks in advance.


You can appear for stamping anytime during the petition validity period. However, whenever you appear make sure you carry recently dated and correct documents like offer letter, client letter etc.
