H1B Cap exempt question
Hi, I need help on below query.

I came back to India in 2020 before covid, but couldn't go back due to travel restrictions. In this time my H1b visa got expired and I switched job. Now I again want to go back to US. I understand that I will be cap exempt and need to find a sponsor but can someone tell me the whole process and what all docs are required for cap exempt process ?

DS-160 application is different in visa appointment
Hello team ,

Hope you are doing well..!!

Question : we booked interview slot for me (h1)and my spouse (h4) at Mumbai consulate however i made small mistake , I put the different ds-160 number in visa application for my spouse even though we have common DS-160 form(application ID)..

Will that be fine ? Or should I need to reschedule appointment and correct the profile for my spouse application id ?

Thank you ..!!

H1B - H4 Dropbox Appointment - Question

Back in April 2021 I scheduled a visa appointment at New Delhi for my H1B and my spouse's H4 visa renewal via drop box (both were eligible). The drop box is scheduled for July 2nd week at New Delhi. My spouse and kids travelled to India in May and my plan was to join them in July.

Unfortunately due to the travel ban I am finding it hard to convince my employer to go to India for my H1B drop box.

Is it possible for my spouse to attend the drop box appointment alone without me ? Or should we schedule another separate H4 drop box with a new bank receipt ? My spouse has all relevant I-797A copies from my H1B renewal.

Please advise.

Expired H1B but has a valid i-797a - possible options in getting Visa Stamping from India
Our H1B and H4 was expired on March 2020 - We both now have I-797a that's valid till Feb 2023.

Could you advise me with my possible options in getting my new valid Visa stamped from India If we are able to visit India in mid August 2021 (for 2 months).

Whether I can still avail Drop Box facility even though the same Class Visa (same company) stamped from India previously was expired more than 12 months ago. ( is there any waiver now just like it was extended to 24 months last year?)
I can see that Mumbai US Consulate is opening on 7th June 2021 as per if that's the only US consulate opening, whether I can schedule an appointment there even though my closest / assigned US Consulate is Chennai.

Please advise/help me with all the possible options.
