      why stamp?

      why do you need to stamp in the first place
      having a h1b approval means you can stay in the country and work on your h1b visa.
      the stamping of the visa is required only if you have to travel out of the country and return to poe.

      for example if you do plan to go back to your country of origin, then you can
      get it stamped there to facilitate you easy entry back to usa.

      make sure you get advance appointments while planning your travel and get this done first and foremost

        Help : L1 to H1 status change : Please advice

        Thanks for the reply.
        New I-94 is not there in my H1 approval. Usually if u apply H1 with status change when you are in US. If we did so then we will get I-94 with h1 approval.
        My employer filed H1 with out status change. So I need to get stamped.

        Let me know I can get stamped in Canada? I am in USA 2.5 yrs.

          canada's okay

          it's okay to get your passport stamped in canada if you surely want to do so. make sure you get the appointment and are prepared for extended stay in case they ask for additional information that you've got to get from your employer.

                I have been working in USA on L1B and I had applied for H1B for 2007 cap . it got approved and I got new I94 also. My questions are

                1. Is it ok if I continue to work on L1B.
                2. If I go to H1B stamping and if I get it stamped then my L1b will be cancelled?
                3. If the H1B stamping is rejected , can I continue to work in L1B.?

                please help me.
