If the consulate is not handling the case i.e. petition is sent back to USCIS , then you could apply for a new visa. I would suggest contact the consulate to see if you need to withdraw previous application for visa.

Yes, u can go for a new H1B while ur previous visa application is pending admin processing. When u appear for a visa interview based on ur new H1B petition, just take a letter with u stating that u would like to withdraw the pending visa application. U do not even need to state this unless VO asks about ur pending application.

In most cases, VOs are aware that u have a pending visa application with them. I have seen cases where the VO asks about the pending application and i have also seen cases (including myself) where the VO didn'e ask anything about it.

@gcgc can you elaborate more on your second visa experience or give a link to where you posted your interview experience?

Thanks

gcsgc,

I am also in the similar situation. Where did you go second time for the visa interview?

I have my old one still pending since 5 months , in chennai, and i Have scheduled new one in Hyd on Nov 22nd.

When i emailed to chennai, for withdrawing petition, they asked me to come in person on this thursday,17th at 2.00PM. Please let me know if this is mandatory....

Hi lakshma

i think better you need to withdraw your old petition in chennai...or at the time of interview also you can give a letter to withdraw the application if they ask you..better to carry the withdrawal letter while going for interview in hyd..
