I had an H1B stamping appointment scheduled for November, just got an email cancellation. There are no others until late next year, is there anything I can try at this point or should I just sit down and cry?

Alternative, i think you can getting stamping in other countries that you are not resident of. Canada, Mexico but with Covid and all there are many factors to be considered. Sorry you are having such difficulty. Hopefully something works out.

Thank you, I guess I should start looking into this too

What reason consulate provided for cancellation? They should have at least given you possible dates of rescheduling. I would call customer service and talk to them.

None at all, I heard they were doing this in many locations just last minute cancellations

Which consulate is this?

San Jose, Costa Rica

Are you costa rica citizen? If not that might be the reason.

I am. Apparently they’re not doing anything in person unless it’s an emergency appointment. I just don’t understand the timing/out of the blue.

Hang in there. I’ve been trying to get an appointment since the beginning of the year in my home country and finally managed to secure an emergency appointment - with an NIE supporting the request. Try other countries - Mauritius, Egypt, Thailand.

Thank you again! This is very helpful. My employer probably won’t want to do that but can’t hurt to try

Okay I feel like I’ve been talking about therapy way too much on this thread. So I just started therapy for the first time.

The last couple weeks I’ve been really diving deep and realizing things about myself on a deeper level. And I feel so triggered by it. I know that this is a good thing but damn.
