Traveling to get Visa stamp with 8 months left on I797


Recommended Posts


I am currently planning to travel to india in December for a family occasion. Both my wife (h4) and I (h1b) have i797 approval notices valid until Aug 2023. I have dropbox appointment for the both of us in December 2022. Both of our visa stamps in the passport are expired since Aug 2020 and we are in my 2nd h1b with approved I 140. Is it a problem to go for visa stamping with only 8 months left in my current h1b validity?  New I129 to get another I797 for my 3rd extension cannot even be applied until Feb 2023. Does anybody have any experience with a similar situation?

Please help!
