Make sure to carry photocopies of all previous I-797’s for dropbox
The required documents list doesn’t say to get all previous I-797’s but during Dropbox they ask for old approval notices as well.

Hi All,

H-1b visa holder (Primary Applicant) is eligible for an in-person interview and only H-4 visa holder (Dependent Applicant) is eligible for drop box.

Can a dependent visa holder (H-4 Visa Holder) give up her drop box and go with H-1b visa holder (Primary Applicant) for an in-person interview or should we schedule individual appointment as per eligibility?

Thank you!

Passport returned with case number and a message stating interview required after drop box

My dropbox appointment was scheduled on May 19th for the VAC location New Delhi, but now since May 4th 2022 drop box facility is available from any US Embassy location regardless of the appointment scheduled location, so I dropped off my passport and documents at Hyderabad US consulate location

Today I received the passport with letter containing CASE NUMBER and message stating that my presence is required at the US Embassy for an interview on any business day before 10:00 AM

My question is can I attend interview at Hyderabad US consulate or do I need to attend at New Delhi consulate and do I need to schedule an appointment?

How can I check status of CASE NUMBER ? How can I find out what is the reason for an interview and what documents are required?

I tried checking the case number in ceac site but was not successful. Can someone pls share US Embassy visa support contact number.

Has anyone else faces similar situation pls share.

H4 administrative processing
I am an H4 visa applicant and got visa interview schedule on February 16, 2022 and my wife's H1b visa expires April 30,2022. By the time of my interview, my wife's H1b visa was not yet renewed/extended so the US consulate questioned my wife's H1B validity. I have no other documents to prove aside from the current H1B she have, so I showed the embassy the FORM 9035 Labor Condition Application for Nonimmigrant Workers to prove that my wife is staying in US and VO doesn't have any idea about this document. Form 9035 is one of the documents submitted for employment based green card process step 1. My H4 visa application was under administrative processing and they will email us if they need more documents.

My wife received her new H1B visa last May 15. It's been 3 months since the visa interview and my status is still under administrative processing.

What should I do about it?

Hi All,
I have H4 stamping till Dec 2022 and planning to travel to India in September/October. My husband will get H1B extension in June and get new i797 in July. My query is if I don't go for stamping in India and return to US with the existing stamp, will my i94 be extended based on the date of my husband's new i797?
