H-1B Stamping Ottawa (In Person)
1) Aug 21 - Interview (very simple and easy)
2) Aug 22 - Visa "Issued"
3) Aug 24 - Passport Ready for pickup

Very quick turnaround provided this was my H-1B Renewal and had two previous F-1 Visas. The only document they asked for with my I-797A was my previous passport with all my previous visas.

First Time H1B Stamping in Toronto
I paid for my visa application fee on October 25, 2022 and the next available date is November 16, 2023 so I chose it. Now I am starting to gather all my documents and realize that the visa application fee expires October 25 2023. I tried to reschedule for a closer day but there's no available date.

Anyone ever be in my shoes? Any suggestions? Any tips to find a closer date?

H1b visa stamping through drop box in Ottawa
This has been my status since 26th May - at US consulate in Ottawa

The consular officer has approved your application subject to final processing by the consular section that is necessary to issue your visa. When that processing is complete, the status will change to "Issued". However, a final screening step must still be completed prior to issuance that could lead a consular officer to conclude that you are not eligible for a visa. If that occurs, the consular officer will notify you that your application has been denied and your status will change to "Refused".
For more information, please visit U.S. Embassy Ottawa.

Anyone with similar experience? Trying to figure out the timeline of how much longer it would take as my employer is getting impatient .

Question regarding date availability if COPR holder
Hi, I am unable to get dates for this year if I apply as a third country citizen (non-US and non-Canada but working in US).
I hold a COPR and planning to do a landing soon. 1.) Could you tell me where does this visa interview waiver option show (Does it show at the time of creating the account on ais.usvisa-info site) or there is an option after opening an account. 2.) I already created an account, submitted my DS-160 no. and paid the visa fees as a third country citizen. Is it possible to change the profile here for an interview waiver (basically asking so that I avoid paying the fees again) or do I need to create a fresh account and fill the questionnaire again (where I fill the info that I am a Canadian resident and see the interview waiver option) I will do step 2 (i.e new account and new DS-160) once I land there.
