My H1B petition was approved in September 2012 and is expiring on 30th Aug 2013. My employer is sending me USA and I completed all formalities(including completion of DS160 and LCA transfer is also approved) but Immigration department disclosed at last moment that I need to file for H1B petition extension under cap-exempt and only after getting extension I can go for visa stamping.
Is it true? or is it possible that I go for visa stamping and file for extension in parellel ?
In that case will US embassy allow for visa stamping or ask me to file for extension first ?
Thanks and regards
