H1B visa appt wait times: dropbox vs regular option


Recommended Posts



I urgently need to schedule an H1b visa appointment to get my passport stamped. After doing some research online, it appears that I am eligible for the interview waiver "dropbox" option.


Now, when I try to estimate the amount of time it takes to schedule a visa appointment at https://travel.state.gov, it tells me that it takes between 2-3 months at some consulates. 


My question is this - If I am eligible and choose to use the "dropbox" option instead of the regular interview option, will my wait time be lesser ? or would it be the same ?


I appreciate information from ANY members who have scheduled their visa appt using the "dropbox" option.
