Q.

Can I apply for H1-B ammendment?

I am currently in US, working on F1/OPT status. My employer filed my H1-B this year and I have received I-797B approval notice(asking me to go to my home country for stamping).

I have gone through my I-129 petition and noticed that my employer requested for my "change of status" in PART-2 since I am already in US.

But in PART 4 :" Processing Information-Question-1" of form I-129 they have selected my home country consulate.

Could you please let me know if this is the reason I would have received I-797B? if yes, is there a chance to apply for amendment(assuming my employer mentioned the consulate by mistake?)
