Surely not before the EU ban is lifted

Due to the delta variant, don't expect any bans lifted this year.

Now we have Delta+

I predict another ~6months-1year as of July 1..with 1year as more realistic due to ongoing (more transmissible and potentially more dangerous) mutations. I believe U.S. is allowing Indian students on F1 visas starting fall 21 (could be because they pay international tuition rates).

This travel ban applies mostly to those who are on a work visa need their visa stamped. I have heard folks who have valid visas going to Dubai/Mexico for a couple of weeks then flying to the U.S.

Is The current travel ban on folks with work visas as well? In my understanding:
H1B ❌
B1/2 ❌
What about folks traveling on
- other passports from India?
- valid 140

So, if I go to visa stamping- even if I have all the supporting documents, will I still receive 221g on basis of travel ban .?

I bet next summer

Next year!

I accepted an offer from another consulting firm and my H1B visa has also been transferred. I have not joined the new role yet. However I had been interviewing with another firm and expecting an offer I know this is not the best practice but is it allowed to accept another offer even though H1 transfer has been approved through another employer? If I accept the second offer does this raise any red flags with USCIS as they potentially see 2 almost consecutive visa transfer requests?
