I appeared for H1B Visa interview recently in New Delhi consulate and I was given 221g Green handout. I've submitted the required documents to VFS on the same day except passport and now I'm waiting for consulate decision. My questions are:
1 - My passport is expiring on Jan 2013. If the result of 221g processing comes when my passport is valid for less than 6 months, then what will happen? Will consulate reject my H1B application due to my passport is expired?
2 - If I get new passport re-issued now while I'm waiting for the result, will I have to reapply for H1B since I'll be getting new Passport number which will be different from what was written in DS-160 and my old passport will be cancelled?
3 - If I apply for H4 (since my wife is in the US on H1B) now and get it approved and go to the US and then I get notification from consulate to submit my passport and if I don't submit my passport, will it be considered as H1B rejection? Will it affect my visa stamping in future in any way?
Please let me know.
