Tag No Show & Unlock Receipt - 48 Months New Rule

I was told that I am not eligible for drop box when I attended on Jan 30th because of new 48 months rule (My last stamping was 7 years back) effective Jan 1st 2024. Its been 5 days since I have raised a case number to mark my profile as TAG NO SHOW and UNLOCK My Previous paid receipt but the case number is still IN PROGRESS. If I pay Visa fee $205 again can I able to see Visa slots ? Can I create new profile and map my old DS-160 and pay fees ? Please let me know your suggestions/experiences. Thank You.

Hi Sai, Is the VFS does not allow you to submit even though you booked the appointment before Jan 24?

I am planning to go on May and I will be 49 months by then but i have dropbox appointment booked on Dec 23. Do i need to cancel my current appointment and start fresh?
