DS-160 - Updating with new Receipt number

Hi everyone, Hope all are well. I have a question and hope to get some direction.

  1. I am currently residing in the US, since Aug 2019.
    ( I have an I-140 approved and I-485 approved, but no GC visa numbers available now)

  2. My current H1B visa expired on 01 Feb 2021.

  3. I have an approved I-129 valid from 28 Sep 2020 to 31 Aug 2023. ( I filled DS-160 with this petition number for interview on 11 Sep 2023, even though my petition expires before my interview date).

  4. I have a new Approved I-129 valid from 01 Sep 2023 to 31 Aug 2026.

Is there a way to update DS-160 with my new Receipt number and keep my original Sep 2023 interview date?

Please advise, Many Thanks - sjacob.

You can submit a new DS-160 with updated info and call VFS so they can update the # in your appointment. Then carry the old and new DS-160 to your interview.

Just curious why you are not switching to GC EAD and AP for job and travel purposes instead of all H1B hassle.

Good question. For some reason, my company wants me to travel back from India, with H1b visa instead of EAD/AP.
