H1B Petition Filed with Premium Processing - Can I already Schedule Appointment?


My petitioner has filed H1B petition with premium processing, which gives 15 days time. Current wait times for H1B embassy appointments are 3 weeks. Do I need to wait for the petition to be approved to file DS-160 and get an appointment or can I already do that?

Thank you,

Fill it out and keep ready and once you get the I-797, update DS-160 and then submit.
