  • H1B Approval sent to Mumbai stamping in Chennai

    Dear Experts,

    My H1B petition's approval had been sent to Mumbai consulate but as a resident of Chennai I believe I'm suppossed to make the application for stamping at the consulate in Chennai. I'm sure to be redirected to Chennai at Mumbai consulate but my questions are : (1) If I'm redirected is there a minimum waiting period (2) Can I directly apply to the consulate in Chennai without going to Mumbai?

    I've been told by my employer that I-820 - reprint of H1B approval and change of consulate takes about 1 year !!! I've seen other threads in this forum on this topic, but nobody updates what happenned to their approval once they went to Chennai.

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

    Best wishes,

    Prabhu
