Regarding the renewal of passport for H1B Visa


#1

My passport is expiring in July 2018 and my travel date on H1 is in the month of March 2017. The intended period of stay in US is 3 years

I am about to get an appointment for VISA interview.

Please let me know if this causes any issues during stamping process, and any possible ways to get PP renewed before/after the stamping.
