Hi All,

My current visa stamping is expiring on August 15, 2019. Can I travel before (i.e. now or anytime before August 2019) to India and get my visa stamp before August 15, 2019. I have my I-797 A approval notice valid until July 2021.

Will I be able to travel back immediately after that back to the USA or there are other conditions apply?

You need to use latest I-797 (2019-2021) details.

Yes, you can return. Visa stamp always has a issued date on it, not a start date.

Yes, they should.
