TWIC and H1B in the US

Hi guys,

I just got my H1B visa in the US and am ready to start working. Currently, I’m already in the US.
I need to get my TWIC card and am applying this week.
On the required documents it says I need a Passport, I-94 and a H1B visa itself.
H1B approval is a document and not a VISA itself. Do you think I need to go back to my home country and get the H1B stamp in my passport before I can get a TWIC?

Thank you.

You may want to contact your local consulate.

Hi,

Just wondering what the status of this turned out to be. Did you end up having to get a H1B stamp in order to apply for your TWIC card? If so, how long did the TWIC application take.

Thanks
