Hi, Needed to some advice on this is somebody is already aware:
1.I have a current H1B petition which is expiring on 04/08/2022.
and a new approved petition from the same company which is valid from 04/09/2022 to 04/08/2025.
2.I am travelling to India and have my dropbox appointment in March for which I will be using my new petition which is valid from 04/09/2022 to 04/08/2025.
Does the 10 day rule below apply to me? I am currently working for the same company for which I am going for my visa stamping. Wanted to confirm if I can travel back to US once I get my stamping done in India.
*You can apply for an H1B visa up to 90 days in advance beginning of employment status as noted on the form I-797, Notice of Action, however your entry to the US is restricted to 10 days prior to the start date as noted in the Form I-797 unless you are already working on an H1B visa for the same employer.
