Could change of US consulate for H-1B visa stamping cause me any problems?

Asked about 1 year ago - New York, NY

I originally identified Toronto as the consulate to get my H-1B visa stamped when my petition was filed. I have now received my approval notice and I will be going to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico due to a longer waiting time to get an appointment in Toronto. Can the change of consulate cause delays or problems with processing my visa?

  2. Answered . As my colleagues expressed, if the proper I-824 is filed and approved, you should be fine. However, any type of change with immigration could cause problems and delays. It would be best if you would stay in Toronto and wait so there are no problems.
