VISA waiver eiligibility
Hi Everyone,

I want to know if anyone has come into this situation ever. Please help me if you guys have any information regarding this.

I had a valid stamped VISA (2 months remaining) & I visited India and went for VISA stamping because I had the change the employer.

I got my passport stamped but the older VISA was cancelled with Prejudice. They put a stamp on it `Canceled with Prejudice`.

Now I want to know if I am eligible for VISA waiver program or not. Since there is a question `Has your VISA ever canceled or revoked`. What should be the answer for that.

If I select YES, it doesn't ask for reason and this means I will never eligible for VISA waiver program.
If I select NO, then not sure if that is correct answer because my VISA was canceled.

I had tried contact traveldocs but they are saying that they wouldn't comment anything on that.

Any help is much appreciated. thank you!

Visa Stamping status is pending(S221g), as i didnt have a client letter
Visa Stamping status is pending(S221g), as i didnt have a client letter and while stamping I have different client which I have come out now. Hence I don't have a scope to get the client letter from the client which I have mentioned while in the stamping process. I was given yellow slip with 221g mentioned on it asking to mail client letter to my employer. Because i don't have that client right now, can i submit a different client letter now?

H-1B Visa Amendment while visa stamping is scheduled

Can some one help on below query?

I have got visa stamping scheduled in next 4 months. While visa stamping is scheduled, in between can I make the amendment to visa? Do I need to change DS-160 form submitted for stamping? Is stamping associated with latest amendment approval? In case amendment takes time and less possibility to get approval by stamping date then what is the solution or procedure?

[Urgent Query] For H1B stamping
There are few things :
I have my valid L1B and valid B1/B2 but i can't enter US on any of these.
My passport is expiring on July 2022 and My H1B I797 is valid till July 2024.
[Query]Will i get H1B valid visa till July 2022?
[Query]If above is yes, then my I94 will be valid till July 2022. I don't think extension filling will be needed but VISA stamping will be needed. Correct me if I am wrong?
I have my biometric on Dec 1, 2021 and consulate on Dec 22, 2021. I can get my passport renewed during this time usually it takes max 2 weeks. It will result in my passport number change and its validity change. I just checked with Embassy, DS 160 can also be changed after biometric. But my petition would have been approved w.r.t my previous Passport number.
[Query]Since this is first time stamping will changing DS 160 after biometric result in consequences like visa rejection or 221g etc because petition was approved based on previous passport number?
[Query] Whats recommended in terms of stamping w.r.t above case (Not changing DS160 and just travel with new passport/Changing DS160 after biometric and get stamping done on new passport)?
Any help will be appreciated.
