US Visa interview waiting period in India - 2022

Hi All,

What’s the US visa interview waiting period in India to get the visa stamp on passport? Has anyone recently attended or booked slot in coming months? Please share your comments. I am planning to travel to India in April, 2022. Is traveling to Canada better option?
I am eligible for Dropbox now but planning to switch company in March, 2022 before I travel for India. Is it correct that I disqualify for drop box after changing the company?

Appreciate your feedback. Thank you!

Employer change is no more a criteria for drop box. If you meet the requirements, you qualify.

Hi Kalpesh,

  • If I am applying for an H or L (individual) or R visa, my prior visa in the same class is still valid or expired within the last 12 months.

It was 24 months earlier, correct ? when did this change happen ?

It is 48 months till 31st December 2021 due to covid.
Standard was always 12 months as far as I know.

Got you. Thanks Kalpesh !
