VAC appointment Consular Processing


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have an I-797B and my H1B petition(first time) was approved under consular processing. I have never gone for stamping to the foreign consulate. 
They have a question in the portal  before moving to the screen where they show the available slots -  Do you have previous H1b visa?

1. I answered no as I have an approved petition but not a visa on the passport. I hope this is correct. 

2. The system first schedules the VAC appointment and then the Consulate inteview. Why is a VAC appointment required considering that my fingerprints were taken when my F-1 visa was issued in the past?
