One of my friend did it and was successful .....


Check with Deloitte's in-house legal team. For EY, our legal team made it clear that we had to go back to our home country for visa stamp. All documents were address to the local embassy


A smart thing to do is get the stamp from a country which has a PwC office you can work remotely from in case yours doesn't. That way you can work out of that office if you face a delay.


Not recommended if it's your first h1b stamp

Thanks! Not recommended by whom?

A immigration firm called NYIS. It's recommended to go to home country for the first stamp

Their info is pretty good and staff are helpful

I got mine in Buenos Aires. Go for it.

Awesome. Truth is, I plan to go to France in November and wanted to get my H1B first stamped done in Canada before hand. What's everyone's thoughts on just doing it in Paris or something?

Are you from Paris? If from Paris, get it in Paris.

Some people have gotten stuck/ delayed in Canada.

Nope from the orient.


Good question, what about the third stamp? Got my i140 recently? Its yearly after 6 years i believe
