Has anyone traveled outside the US to get visa stamping? What’s the average admin processing times after the interview? Looks like appointments are available in Mexico City but don’t want to go there and get stuck for an extended period of time.

My experience at the Mexico City consulate was great. My h1b stamp was ready the next day after the interview. But I’m a Mexican national. I know they were not allowing foreign nationals.

Admin processing times can range from 1 week to 6 months, depending on the reason and your case background.

If all clear then you should receive your passport in 3-4 days.

I am currently in my home country and will be going for my 2nd stamping on monday. It is recommended that you go to your home country for stamping during these uncertain times because if u fail to secure visa you cant reenter US. Also, get the appointment in advance before travel. My first stamping last year (in feb) i got approved during the interview and then go the passport back in 3 days.

Additional background - I’m an Indian national and was aiming to visit Mexico City for visa stamping. Looks like it might be a bit detrimental to try this in the current climate, especially with the onset of Omnicron variant?
