  • H-1B and traveling abroad

    My partner got his J-1 visa transferred to an H-1B visa last fall. We want to travel somewhere in Europe (Portugal or Italy) in September and were wondering if it would be problematic after Sept. 11th? He is Indian (not Muslim) and has not left the country since getting his H-1B. In addition to getting a visa for the country which we are visiting, he'd have to make an appt. with the American embassy to get his H-1B stamped, from what I understand.

    Does anyone have any experience or advise regarding this? Would it be better to go to Canada/Mexico or his home country to get the visa stamped?

    Thanks.

      You cannot do visa stamping at Mexico or Canada for the H1B instead forward your PP to State department at st. Louis.

        What do you mean, people go all the time to Canada or Mexico to get their h-1b stamped?

          What do you mean, people go to Canada and Mexico all the time to get their h-1b stamped.

              Thanks but what I mean is whether getting it stamped in Italy or Portugal or somewhere other than Canada/Mexico/home country is risky.
