Need to retrieve passport without completing visa process
I submitted my passport for H1b IWP last week in Toronto consulate. My documents were received on 12 Jan. By reading experiences here, it looks like it will take another month atleast for me to get my passport back. Mine is still ‘No Status’ as of now.

In the meantime, my dad has fallen really ill and I really need to go to Delhi asap. I don’t mind not getting my H1 stamped right now, I just need to be there for him. Is there a way I can get my passport back without any stamping? Has anyone ever done this? Should I just contact the Toronto embassy and ask them the procedure? Any help would be really appreciated.
