🐟s - any anecdotes on your experience getting H-1B stamping done in Canada or Mexico (Indian passport)? Any reason to choose one over the other? Is it risky to do so (my current visa stamp is expired, have an approved extension 797). How long did you plan the trip for?

Right now the embassies are mostly closed and entertaining US citizen and in limited capacity Canadian citizen seeking US services in Canada. Even then so, the appointment aren’t readily available. If you can get an appointment, but aren’t a Canadian you may have some additional questioning, and in the worst case refusal. There are some non-Canadians who were successful with visa appointments pre-COVID.
