  1. When you fill in details in DS-160 it automatically chooses you for Dropbox if you had already attended H1B interview in the past. You will get all details when to attend to submit the documents for Dropbox. And there is no rule to book an appointment for dropbox and thats def sure because I just went and came back with no issue.
  2. My Story: Got first DUI (only first) in Sept 2018 and cleared the court case in Feb 2019 and the case was dismissed to Wet Reckless. I have a full-time job with a decent package. I went to Visa stamping in Hyderabad for second-time visa stamping. DropBox: Location: Hyderabad Visa Type: H1B Jan 17th: Went to the OFC Center and to the dropbox counter. I submitted the documents current and previous passports, current and previous H1B Copies, and 2 passport size photos. Jan 20th: Documents reached US Consulate from OFC office. Jan 22nd: CGI Status: Passport has been received from the consular section, and is currently being processed for delivery. CEAC Website status: Your visa case is currently undergoing necessary administrative processing. This processing can take several weeks. Please follow any instructions provided by the Consular Officer at the time of your interview. If further information is needed, you will be contacted. If your visa application is approved, it will be processed and mailed/available within two business days. Jan 23rd: Received passport and they mentioned in a letter (221G) to attend visa interview on any working day between 10 to 11 AM. Jan 27th: Attended the interview, VO asked very basic questions like company name, designation and they directed me to a Physician Panel evaluation. So I emailed them for the appointment. Questions about DUI: Asked the situation and how it happened: Explained She did not ask the documents but I mentioned if I could provide them the documents. She said yes and I gave the attested court documents. She entered some details in her system for about a min and gave my documents to someone inside. That inside person verified something and gave the documents back to VO. VO entered some more details and gave me the 221G. I emailed to doctor and received a doctor appointment on Jan 30th. Jan 30th: Attended the clinic, it took the whole day for US applicants. Definitely expect to pay RS 15000 at the clinic for the medical tests. Feb 4th: US Consulate received the medical reports sent by the doctor. And they sent me an email to submit the documents at the VAC center. Documents: passport, 221g copy and document submission letter which the US Consulate will mention in detail in the EMail. Don't worry about the details. Feb 5th: Submitted all the documents and the status changed to "Your passport is still with the US Embassy/Consulate" on CGI portal. Feb 7th: CEAC Website shows ISSUED and it says, Your visa is in final processing. If you have not received it in more than 10 working days, please see the webpage for contact information of the embassy or consulate where you submitted your application. Feb 9th: CGI Status: Passport has been received from the consular section and is currently being processed for delivery. Took 2 working days to receive the passport. To track your passport email to passportstatus@ustraveldocs.com with your passport number in submit and in the email body and nothing else. This passportstatus@ustraveldocs.com automatically check exactly the status of passport and immediately responds to you like "The current status of your passport is In Transit From Post." or something relative.

    Congrats on getting your documents with approvals. Did it take 3 months to get the status approved?

    H1B with Reckless driving

    I did not go to India in April 2019. I have plans to travel Jan or Feb 2020.
  5. I was arrested for DUI for one day initially and got the case resolved with Reckless Driving. I was arrested in Sept month. I have my H1B valid till 2021 April but I wanted to go to India in April 2019. With current Immigration rules taking into consideration any possibility that I can be denied at the port of entry or my visa revocation when I go for H1B stamping ? Please provide your suggestions. I can provide more details if needed. Thanks.
