Hope all’s well!
I am writing this in reference to my upcoming visa appointment on 15th Dec 2021 at the US Consulate,Hyderabad.
By way of background, I booked my appointment last year in April and due to Covid and multiple travel restrictions, I could not make it to the interview and had to defer it.
In the meantime, I had to renew my Indian Passport as it was expiring in January 2022.
The new passport has a different passport number but shows a link to the old passport number on it.
So the situation in hand is as follows,
- My VISA appointment shows my old passport number ( which is the passport number in my I797 H1B approved petition)
- My DS160 is also tagged to my old passport number and location Kolkata (which was my original choice).
Could you advise me on what changes I have to make? I can fill out a new DS160 with the changes I need to make but what passport number do I use? The old passport number that is on the appointment and on the petition or the new passport? I thinking the stamping needs to happen in the new passport
