Passport expiring before H1B?

My passport expires in July 2018 and I have my H1B interview scheduled this month. So will there be any issues in stamping as the H1b duration is 3 years and my passport is expiring before that. I live in India and as per the rule, I can’t renew passport before July 2017 (one year).

I did read somewhere that you passport should be valid for at least six months after H1b duration.

Kindly guide me in this regard.

Thank you.

You will get visa till your passport expiry date

Even your I 94 will be same

It’s better to get new passport in premium before going for stamping

There is no such rule that passport cannot be renewed before one year to expiry. My passport was expiring in 2015, before coming to US in 2013 I applied for a renewed passport in 2012. Was issued one without any hassles.
