My current H1-B is expiring, and I have the approval notice for the
extension. However, I am worried about getting the stamp into my
passport outside the states for the fear of getting stuck. Just
yesterday, someone told me of a spanish H1-B applicant stuck in Spain
since Christmas. Although she has an approval notice, the authorities
somehow refuse to put the stamp into the passport, citing need for a
"background check". And this is not the first time I hear such a story
I know that you can mail your stuff to Washington, and it takes a number
of months that you have to be without your passport (which is unsettling
as well). Have any of you done this? How long did it take? Do you think
it is a good alternative if you have no travel plans for the next 6 months?
thanks for your advice
