    Does we need to fill DS-157 form for revalidation of H1B visa at St.Louis.
    I sent my passport on 14th Jan 02 to St.Louis with DS-156 form only. before sending my documents,I verified with DOS official web site for required documents. It says about DS-156 only. It doesn't say anything about DS-157 form( in the revalidation requirements). As on today( Jan 21st) this site gives about DS-156 as required document. I also verified with immihelp Website.
    If DS-157 is compulsory for revalidation of H1B Visa, Is there any way I can send DS-157 form as an additional document to St.Louis Office. Or I need to to wait (12-15 weeks) for rejection of application and resubmit with DS-157 form.
    I appreciate your help in this regard . My thanks in advance.
