I got my H1B approved last October and am planning to go back to my home country (China) after the pandemic is over to get a stamping. Will there be a chance that they won’t stamp my visa due to the current US-China relationship?

If the only reason for travel is visa stamping I would avoid international travel altogether

There is a chance they won’t stamp because consulates are closed?

Visa stamping is not mandatory as long as you stay in the US. Not worth the risk imo.

It would depend on any new restrictions would be placed on immigration. Under the current rules, it should not be a problem.

So of my friends are from Iran and they had no issues. It is harder, you might have to try twice to get the visa. As long as you can budget that time, you should be 👍

I would not do that myself
