  1. Hi, My parents' B2 visa expires in January 2022. I would like to have them renew their visas before they can visit US next year. Is dropbox option available for visitor visa currently or should they schedule a visa appointment? Also, I see that only emergency appointments are available in Chennai consulate. So, I am not sure if a visitor visa renewal falls under the "emergency" category. Any input on this will be helpful! Thanks!

  3. Hello, I am currently on H1B visa. However, I am in the process of exploring alternate career options as I would like to move away from the kind of job I am doing right now. So, I am trying to take online courses and see if I can gain some experience in these other fields. I also came across certain freelance jobs offered by companies based in India and Singapore. I am interested in them primarily to gain experience in that field and not to make money. So, my question is: While I am on H1B, am I allowed to take up these freelance jobs if the employer is not in US? It looks like they pay in USD also, but since they are not based in US, they are not going to provide any tax forms. I just want to make sure if it is legal to explore this option before I get into that path. Thank you!

    H1B - DS160 - consulate info

    Thank you all for the replies. My husband was able to schedule an interview in Hyderabad with the first DS-160 application number. An interview slot opened up suddenly for the dates we were looking for and he was able to cancel his Mumbai appointment and reschedule ay Hyderabad.
  5. Hello. We are planning to travel to India next month and my husband has to schedule an interview for H1B visa stamping for his renewed H1B petition. On his DS-160 form, he has chosen Hyderabad as the consulate to submit his application. However, there are no available appointments at the Hyderabad consulate for the time when we will be in India. Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi consulates have available slots. My question is: Can he choose Hyderabad in his DS160, but then can he attend an interview in any of the other consulates? Or should the consulate on the DS160 match up with the consulate he will be interviewing at? Thank you!
  6. Hello. My parents are here in US since Sept 2016 and I applied for their visa extension on January 10th 2017. I have requested for a 5 month extension till July 27th, 2017. Their I-94 expired on February 27th, 2017. We received a letter from USCIS indicating acceptance of application, but the case is still under processing. I was wondering if they can travel inside the US by air when their case is still pending. Will the TSA agent stop them at the airport if they see that their I-94 has expired? Will carrying the USCIS receipt notice help them in case they are questioned by a TSA agent? Could anyone provide your thoughts on this? Thanks!
