  • New question on VFS website for H1 renew


    My visa on passport expired 2 years back. After that i got 3 extensions from INS , but never stamped in Passport. i planning to get stamped in india this OCT. On VFS website they added question

    Are you applying for same visa class that expired in the last 12 months?*

    I am in same class , but my visa expired 2 years back. If yu select option "NO" there are no dates available.

    I called vfs , but no proper response. I already booked india tickets. On vfs instructions, it says

    The following applicants do NOT qualify for appointments in the visa renewal category:
    Applicants who have never had a US visa.
    Applicants who have a U.S. visa that expired more than 12 months ago.
    Applicants applying for a different category visa (e.g. had a student visa, now applying for a work visa).

    This means i can not renew my visa in india ? Any suggents , inputs will help.

          Reply from Mumbai Consulate

          I am facing a similar situation. I called US consulate in Mumbai & they said I can select either one. I selected "NO" & i can see the dates are available till 2nd week of Nov. Also they said that as it's a re-stamping, I can make an emergency appointment.

            I called again VFS , they said it is nothing like that, i can renew my visa in india even it is expired more than 1 year. And they dont have any clue why instructions says like that on their website. Any way i selected option 'NO" and bookd dates on OCT. Let see what happens.
