Last Tuesday myself(dependent) and family had been to the consulate. My wife and kid got H1b and H4 approved respectively but my H4 was put under Administrative processing. Now it's really hard to say when this admin processing will get over as you all know that US consulate will take it's own time to clear the cases. My question is, I have a valid H1b petition and I would like to go for H1b stamping by September end. If God forbid I don't receive the passport by then can I apply to get back the passport so that I can go for H1b stamping or should I indefinitely wait for this Admin processing to get over ? Please suggest.
