  1. There is no issue. Typically, they require that you have at least 6 months validity of the passport. Also, if you get your visa stamped in current old passport and it expires, then there is no need to get visa stamping again as long as the visa is valid in it. You can carry your old passport with valid H1B Visa stamp on it. Read the US Customs Border Protection Info on Passports

    1. Visa stamping depends on various factors and it is hard to guess as it varies by case. As long as your documents are good, your employer is good, you should be good !
