  1. @andy_P Yes Mumbai consulate started accepting Drop-box applications for H1B applicants. One of my friend got her visa approved as well today.
  2. With DOS recent (8/12) National Interest Exceptions to Presidential Proclamations (10014 & 10052) for H1-B's, does anyone know how to request an emergency appointment with US Consulate or how to proceed further? If an individual qualifies under following national interest exception ? Travel by applicants seeking to resume ongoing employment in the United States in the same position with the same employer and visa classification. Forcing employers to replace employees in this situation may cause financial hardship. Consular officers can refer to Part II, Question 2 of the approved Form I-129 to determine if the applicant is continuing in “previously approved employment without change with the same employer.”

    @Sindhu Soundararajan I think you can travel back as you have valid visa until Dec-2020. Please check requirements by Air India or MHA website

    H1B Stamping

    @uirams Looks like you are not following the recent news. Trump's recent EO & Proclamation on June 22 will prevent you from getting H1B visa stamped until Jan 2021. US consulates will not issue any new H1B Visas until Jan 2021 (even if the consulates re-open - which no one is sure about). Hope this helps....

    Travel to US with newly stamped visa

    Is this Proclamation only for first time new H1B Visa stamp applicants or does this apply to 2nd and 3rd time Visa stamp applicants as well?

    3rd time H1BVisa stamping

    Just wondering if Trump's June 22 proclamation only applies to first time new H1B Visa stamp applicants or will it apply to everyone who is waiting to get their visa stamped? This is my 3rd time going for H1B visa stamping and I have a 221 (g) to attend in person interview after Dropbox in March

    June 22 Proclamation

    @curiousness I do not think I-797 counts as an official travel document. Checkout following links: Can I know when is your visa appointment scheduled? (as the consulates are currently closed in India) https://www.uscis.gov/travel-documents

    H4 - Travel From India with valid visa status

    @Shashank kashinath The sooner you both leave to US, the better. I doubt if international flights will allow you to board the flight with just one or two month valid visa

    @ramsinghdot Can you let me know which months interview slots are visible to you currently?
  13. @AbhayCharan What is your information source? Or is it just your speculation?

    Executive Order vs H1B Stamping in India

    @gopalakrishnach Looks like no one really getting my question. I am aware that all US Consulates and embassies are closed now. Once the consulates re-open and once they start consular services, will this EO have an impact on H1B Visa stamping?
