Passport renewal and H1b visa stamping

Recommended Posts

Hi Team,

My h1b got approved on 29 Sept 2020.  My passport is expiring on 10 July 2021.  I am planning to give my passport for renewal. Could I submit my DS-160 form with current passport details and then when I have my renewed passport, I can update my DS-160 form?

Please advise what should be done?

You can submit multiple DS-160's. Just make sure you carry the latest ds160 that have your latest passport details.

You have 2 options.

1. Best option is you can start DS 160 but do not submit until 2 to 3 working days before visa interview by this time you will get your passport. Until you submit DS 160 you can edit it how many times you want. Just make sure you keep it active

2. Submit DS 160 with old passport. Once you get new passport fill new DS 160 and submit it and take both old and new DS 160 confirmation pages with you for finger printing or visa interview and there they can help you to can change DS 160 which ever you want to use.
