For DS-160, which receipt number to be used?

Recommended Posts

Please advice me on the receipt to be used in DS-160 application for the below case.

  • My travel plan from US to India is 09/01/2019 to 09/30/2019. (not flexible date)
  • Planning to take the vis stamping in 1st  week of Sep(09/2019).
  • My current I-797 is valid till 10/09/2019.
  • My new I-797 is valid from 10/10/2019 till 10/09/2022.
  • Visa stamping in my passport already expired on 10-SEP-2018. (so I have to appear in person for stamping).

If new one is used, will I get visa stamped from 09/2019(stamping date) to 10/09/22, or (from 10/10/2019 till 10/09/2022)?

If old is used, will they reject that, I have only 3-4 weeks pending in the visa?

Generally, USCIS follows "Last Action Rule" meaning that you must use the petition number which was approved "most recently".
