I am currently in US in the bay area. I have an upcoming visa appointment in New Delhi for dropping off my documents for H1B renewal. I am wondering if i should send an email to the New Delhi embassy regarding NIE while I’m still here in US asking them to confirm that I’d get the NIE with my visa stamped on the passport itself. I heard from one of my friends that someone in her company was able to receive confirmation about NIE this way. Can someone guide/comment here if they know anything?
