I will soon get a H1b determination letter that I have to use in my home country to get the H1b visa. I also have a job offer with an int. organization who will petition for a G4 visa. The date on my I-94 expired but the H1 b was filed before the deadline. Question: Can I pick up the G4 visa in a third-party country or do I first need to get the H1b visa from my home country before being eligible to get the G4 visa?
You do not mention your home country .. which can make a difference with talking about "G" (government) visas. Although everything looks basically "OK" you should meet with an attorney.
