I have H1b VISA valid till 20 Aug 2016. I was in USA from April 2014 to March 2015 and have again came to USA in May 2016. I have changed employer in USA, however my petition was applied in consular processing. Now only option is either I get new I94 through automatic revalidation or go to India and get my VISA. My new employer did not apply I539 for my wife.
If I go to India for stamping, will I be eligible for drop box. USCIS site does not mention about change of employers and the length of the say in USA. I have read change of employers now is eligible for drop. Also, is there criteria for minimum stay in USA to be eligible for drop box?
Also, H1b petition for my wife has been rejected once. Are VISA refusal and petition rejected the same. I dont think so. Asking this as one of the conditions for Drop box eligibility is not VISA refusal. Petition rejection should be fine I guess.
If anyone can answer. It is really urgent for me as I dont have much time left to take decision.
