Hi - I have a Dropbox appointment for Feb 22 that is ~20 months after the expiration of my last H1B visa (which was renewed on time but I need to return to India for stamping). However, historically we were only allowed to use drop up till 12 months after- that rule got extended to 48 months in the proclamation earlier this year in March.
This rule however, is only in place till 31st Dec of 2021. My appointment however is Feb 2022 - is this still valid? Technically at the time of scheduling I was told I am eligible for dropbox but at the time of actual appointment, if the rule truly expires, I am not eligible. What should I do?
Please help! I have to return to India from the US and don’t want to make a mistake
