I changed job few months ago and my old visa expired. I need to get the stamping done for new I-797. Can I go to Canada for stamping instead of India ?

Afghanistan best preference...

Yes but remember you are at a disadvantage if you get stuck there for admin processing.

Yes, it is an unnecessary risk to get stuck / denied in a foreign country. There are 3 possible outcomes:
1. You get approved. No problems there.
2. They deny it and ask you to reapply from home country. You will need to make last minute plans to go to India, book visa interview etc. This is a pain.
3. Your case goes into administrative processing. In this case, you may need to wait for months. It’s painful (and very expensive) to figure out accommodation and wait for your H1b approval. It’s better to be stuck in India, at least you can meet friends / family and eat good food!

Hi everyone,

I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations. 

I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks

Help! Last minute trip to Hawaii, want to use points. Have about 250k points thru both Chase and Amex (each). Also have Amex Plat.
