Hi, does anyone know the situation/availability for getting US visa stamping done in Canada? I want to get that done so that I can then work on figuring out travel to India to visit my parents - getting on to two years since I met them.

OP- few of additional questions on your post. Do you have a Canadian visa? Is this your first time stamping? Have you looked into Mexico?

Thank you MC1! Appreciate it.

No US consulate in Canada is doing normal service for non immigrant visas right now and none of them are doing H1bs except for emergencies. https://ca.usembassy.gov/embassy-consulates/consular-operations-updates/

Thanks. So what are our options then? Is it Mexico and are there other risks/considerations to keep in mind?

Looking for others’ take : 2 months ago I interviewed with the hiring manager for an industry job (large company) that I really want.

I worked for Deloitte and currently with PwC. I’m not comparing both but PwC is too worse in terms of work life balance and work culture.

I do agree it depends on the manager sometimes and trust me he is the worst. Any comments on work culture and work@life balance in PwC SDC Bangalore ?? Is it only me or is there any one who shares similar views?? PwC
