Hi all,

I am on my 1st year H-1B. Since in-person interviews are being waived, can I have my visa stamped by sending the documents via FedEx to my country's US embassy, without me actually leaving the U.S.?

I am very certain that it does not work that way. I just want to be sure that it does not work that way.

You still need fingerprints and also need to change i94 after stamping. Is is essentially Dropbox which counselors were already offer for most of h1b folks

In-person interview slots are un-available or are being waved ? Just curious

check new announcement by travel.state.gov.
It came out dec 23 which extended the waiver for in-person interview till dec 2022 for selected visa and conditions

All! Just a little confused - parts of the EO recalled by the a president earlier this month made some exemptions to H1B workers who could possibly get their visa stamped IF they fall into any of those categories. So hypothetically if the consulates open, we should be able to get it stamped right? I see many posts on the bowl saying H1B still won’t be stamped until December and hence my question!

My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm?

But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts?
As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
