I’m currently working in the USA for my employer on H1-B. I graduated from university in 2018 and was approved for H1-B in August 2019 (change of status from F1 to H1-B automatically took place in October 2019). So I currently have approved H1-B notice but do not have the H1-B visa stamped. Please note that this is my first H1-B stamping and I do NOT fall under the Proclamation from the President as I was physically present in the USA before July 2020.
I’m currently looking to travel to India on an emergency basis and have already filled out DS-160 and supporting documents for Mumbai Consulate but is having a hard time getting any dates until March 2021. I would appreciate it if I could get an appointment date tr any viable alternative. Also, can I opt for the DropBox option? Please let me know.
