H1b extension refiled and approved after a denial. am i eligible for US visa drop box?

Recommended Posts

My profile:

H1b Visa Stamping on my passport expiration date- July 15th 2018

Changed to client ABC in November 2017 and applied for amendemnt + extension. Amendement + Extension petition approved till November 30, 2018

Changed to client XYZ in September 2018 and filed amendement + extension. My petition was denied

Refiled amendment + extension for XYZ client again and got approval.

No change of employer.

i am planning to go to India for Visa Stamping. Would i be eligible for drop box since my petition was approved after a denial ??

Also, when i checked eligibility criteria for US Visa Drop Box i meet all criteria except for one(below) which i  am not sure if the answer is a YES or NO considering my denial before an approval. 

"I have no refusals for a visa in any class after my most recent visa issuance"

Any input on this is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yes you are eligible for drop box. I-797 denial is not same as visa denial.
