H1B interview appointment


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My H1B visa petition has been approved on 15th October. The USCIS website says that they have sent the notice via mail on 15th October. Currently, I am waiting for that notice to come. Meanwhile, I wanted to know if I can schedule the visa interview appointment without the actual approval notice with me. The reason I ask this is because I am not sure if the approval notice contains some case number (or some form of unique application number) that I need to fill when I schedule the visa interview on the new system.

Thank you,

Yes, you need to have receipt # and validity dates of your I-797. The earliest you can do is ask your employer or attorney to scan and send it via email to you so that you can start completing DS 160 and booking you visa interview appointment. So that you can save some transit time from your employer to you via courier or post.
