Am I still eligible for AVR (Automatic Visa Revalidation) to come back to US from Canada on H1b?

Recommended Posts

HI , It's urgent! I am an indian citizen living in US on H1b. I have an expired H1b Visa stamp (visa expired in sept 2019) with valid i94 and i797. I read online I can use AVR to go to canada and come back. I am going to canada in next two days. However, I am going to india next month for my visa stamping for extension so I booked the dropbox interview as well in delhi for next month. Can I still use the AVR to come back to us in this case? I am confused because the drop box visa appointment is technically a "new visa" appointment and AVR rules says there shouldn't be any new visa in process
