Hi All ,
I got my h1b visa extended while in USA for another 3 years .
I must visit India in Nov or Dec 2021 . I understand that us consulate in Mumbai is only accepting emergency appointment or NIE .
Q 1) Is there any news about when consulate will open for standard h1b drobox ? Should I fill DS160 and keep checking for any cancelled slots ?
Is there a risk of getting 221g for a standard h1b drobox in this time of uncertainty ?
Q 2) I am currently in US . would it be a good idea to get a IN person interview ( instead of drobox ) in Mexico for standard h1b stamp on passport ?
I understand during Oct 2021 , USCIS will start issuing fresh h1b visas for 2021 applications and there will certainly be need for opening standard h1b appointment .
Frankly any inputs and/or experience on this matter will help . thanks
