WASHINGTON, DC- H-1B and other work visas like L-1 have dealt with the challenge of traveling out of the US to get their visa stamped even after the petition has been approved. This rule has historically caused a lot of hardships for work visa holders. But this may be changing as early as this summer. The US State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary Nancy Jackson said during a discussion in Silicon Valley with Indian American community leaders that the pilot project that had been announced by the US recently to stamp the non-immigrant work permit visas, including the H-1B, in the US, instead of applicants having to travel back to India for it would start in the summer of 2023.
