H1 stamping consulate change


Registered Users (C)
Hello all!

I am currently working on F1 visa OPT expiring on Jan 7 2005. I have got my H1 approved for the quota starting from October.

If I am not wrong, I must bet the new H1 visa stamped on passport before the OPT expires. But, I have got the stamping consulate as Chennai in India (some mistake) and I have applied to get it changed back to Delhi, which will take 4 months now. So, what should I do? Should I get the new petition of change of consulate cancelled & go ahead with the old chennai one? Can I still go to Delhi embassy with the old Chennai consulate form? Can I apply online to some "queue" of visa stamping in India, so that I can just land in India and go directly to the embassy.

Thanks in advance!!

Did your H1B approval say which consulate you need to go to get the VISA stamped? This is probably some new process. I hav not heard of the H1B approval mentioning the city.
