Stamping within one year?? Is this some rule for H1b???


I got my petition approved till 2018 from my company. I want to check till which year I can go for stamping?

I have heard in one year it should be done? Is it true?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

You can go for stamping anytime during the petition validity period. Anytime you appear for stamping, you need to carry recently dated documents. For example, if you appear for stamping in 2017, then carry client letter, employment letter which are more recently dated and not from 2015-16 (when your petition was originally filed and approved).

If asked about the delay you can reply truthfully - personal reasons or whatever.

Thank you the information. I am relaxed now.
