This is regarding my H1B Dropbox stamping and 221g.
I had a H1B Dropbox appointment on 2nd October 2022 and submitted all my documents for H1 visa stamping at consulate in India:
11th: Application received by the consulate
17th: Refused with 221g
19th: passport collected with 221g
221g says to appear for in-person consulate appointment and to carry any prior arrest/court record documents with me.
I got a DUI in May 2019. And after successful completion of fast ARD (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition) program my record was already Dismissed and Expunged in June 2020. This is my first stamping after DUI.
I am really worried with this 221g! Could you please help and what will be the next steps once I appear for an in-person interview? What additional documents should I carry other than the i797, employment and expungement documents? Do I need any letter from attorney?
Please help me with whatever you can.
