Stuck in India with no work. When will embassies open so that I can at least go for stamping and not worry about it?

OP, follow the Gomez v Trump lawsuit. The hearing is on August 27. That could suspend the visa ban proclamation. If that happens, there is a possibility we might be able to get emergency appointments at the consulates’ discretion since consulates are moving from “Temporarily Closed” status to “Emergency Appointments Only.”

Even if embassies open, you will get stamping only after dec end.

Are you still employed with Deloitte ? Do they allow to work from India or you on an unpaid leave ?

Isn’t the embassies already open? But yeah not stamping H1 until Dec

Yeah how did Deloitte handle this?

I assume that op is on visa suspension without any support from D

I am a contractor and D fired me. I searched for a new opportunity applied for H1b transfer to which I need to go stamping.

I’m 90% certain my owners are selling our privately held financial services company. This is a family owned company and they have always been very generous and cared for their employees. I’m not sure whether I should start pursuing other opportunities and cash out my PTO or stay until the end and hope they want to still care for their employees once the acquisition is complete. Has anyone been in a similar situation and have any advice to offer?
