Default Transfer of B1 to H1B - Stamping with the US

Hello.

As an employer who has employed individuals with B1 visas by filing an H1B while they are in the US, I am interested in finding a possible way of having the H1B stamped while the employee is in the US. Should they leave the US on vacation I do not want to lose the two months currently taken to process the H1B at foreign consulates. Anyone have any suggestions on how we can get these H1B transfers stamped in the US?

It is not possible to obtain a VISA while in the U.S. if the applicant has
never had that same category visa before. First-time visa applicants MUST
apply at an embassy abroad. Only *revalidations* of certain visas are
possible while in the U.S.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the update. Is there any way to speed up the process at the embassy. We have employees who are vital to our clients in the US and we would like to get them back to work as quickly as possible without long delays. Can the client help influence the processing of the Visa through the embassy?

In this age of heightened security measures and added scrutiny, it is very
unlikely that the embassy/consulate will expedite anything for anyone. but
it doesn't hurt to express urgency in a cover letter submitted along with
the visa application.
