I recently got charged with a DUI, I am planning to go for stamping to get my H1 visa stamped? Will there be any problems? Because my case is still pending and will they approve my visa?
There shouldn't be any problems, but consular officers are unpredictable being and can often be quite mercurial..
If I were you, I would wait until after the resolution of my DUI case and then go, with a Memorandum of Law prepared by your lawyer explaining why you should not be deemed inadmissible..
Note thar while Vancouver will buy that (it adheres to the the precedent decisions of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, a highly pro-immigrant, arch liberal court!- whereas the consulates of Calgary, Toronto and Ottawa do not! (Of course, none of this will make any sense to you if it is to Bangalore or vicinity you intend to travel for the "stamping" as you call it..
Yes - anticipate there will at least be a delay as the Consular Officer must refer you to a panel physician for a medical and possible pyschological evaluation regarding medical inadmissibility. See the DOS link below for additional information. I recommend you consult with an immigration attorney who handles consular processing matters before departing the U.S. as you could be significantly delayed or prevented from returning to the U.S.
