I'm an Indian passport holder, currently in the US on the H-1B. My first H-1B expired, and I've renewed/extended it already. I have all the documents I need from the USCIS and I'm going to be headed to India to get it stamped.
Seeing as I'm way overdue for a vacation, and Australia's on my bucket list, I'd like to spend a couple of weeks in Australia on the way over. Does anyone have any experience with doing something similar? I'll be traveling sometime in May 2017. I'm assuming I need to apply for the "Visitor visa (subclass 600)". Are they likely to look sideways at the unstamped H-1B? I'll have a ticket headed from Australia to India, and then India to the USA beforehand.
