Location Change Before Travelling to US


My H1 B has been filed with Location X and has been selected in lottery. Awaiting for Petition approval.

Wanted to know the procedure in case i want to change my location from X to Y before i go for stamping.


Once approved, employer needs to file new LCA and H-1 amendment. I am not sure if you can appear for stamping with pending amendment or have to wait for actual approval of that petition.

Thanks for the response. this answers my question

Hi Saurabh

Further to my query.
how much time does it take to get new LCA and H1 amendment assuming original petition is approved.


LCA would take 1-2 weeks while the amendment would take few months (may be 4-6).
