Hi! I’m an Indian national in the US looking to renew my H1B visa. My work permit is valid but by H1B has expired. All appointments in US consulates in India have been full for the past 2-3 months. Looking to see if I could do this in another country - I’ve heard Brazil, Dubai are options. Have any of you tried this? Where did you go / would you recommend?

Thanks all in advance for your help

There are plenty of options OP.. but if it’s not India it is labelled as “3rd country” which has its own complications .. I suggest talking to your firm’s lawyers.. e.g. my looking at UK and Canada as options
