My H1b Petition got approved very recently and it is effective from 1st October. Currently I am in L1 Visa and it is expiring on 24th August. I will be visiting my wife in Brazil . I am indian and would like to know whether I can stamp my first H1b Visa in US Consulate in Brazil. Please note that I have no degrees from US but My degree certificates are all validated by Indian Chamber of Commerce in order to get Brazilian Work permit 2 years ago.
ArghadipMy wife is a Brazilian Citizen and I have worked in Brazil before. I was just speculating that sometimes US Consulate does not understand the degree certificate of home country. In my case it has been validated by Indian chamber of commerce and Brazilian Consulate durinf my previous tenure in Brazil hence I think they should not give that excuse of foreign degree. Thanks Arghadip
It would depend on whether the consular post is processing third country nationals.

I agree with my colleagues. Check www.usembassy.gov to find contact information for the consulate in Brazil.

I am not clear from your question if your wife is a Brazilian citizen or has other long term status in Brazil. It sounds as though you have had ties to Brazil in the past. You will want to contact the US embassy to clarify your options. However, when you do so, you want to make sure your ties to Brazil are made clear.
