My company is not sending me for stamping


My company filed petition for H1B in 2016 and it is approved status.

Now my HR is saying since there is no opening currently with client, cannot send me for stamping.

Please let me if I can use the same approved petition and go for stamping on my own or through any other sources.


Usually one can appear for stamping by himself as long as they have the necessary documents. However, how your employer reacts to this is unknown as they specifically mentioned that they cannot send you for stamping yet.

You also need to think about the case where you appear for stamping and are asked for additional documents from employer who would then be surprised.
