  • Passport Validity; F-1 (OPT) to R-1


    I'm currently residing & working in the US on my F-1 visa (currently on OPT) and my employer (religious organization) is petitioning for me in order to obtain an R-1 visa since I'm a clergyman. We're currently in the process of filling out the I-129 form and I realized that my foreign passport expires in 3.5 months. Should I fill out the form with the information from my current passport and apply for a new passport at my country's consulate in the US? If that's the case, I'm not sure where my visa will be stamped (current or future passport) or what's going to happen. I would really appreciate some advice on this. Please let me know if you have any other ideas. Thank you!
