Hello,

    I got my h1b amended recently. Now I am filing for visa interview. Will really appreciate the answers to the following questions:

 

1. Which petition number (is it the receipt #?) to use in the visa interview application - Original one or the amended one?

 

2. My wife filed for H4 with the original receipt # before I filed for the amendment, but did not go for the interview as attorney suggested later. So she had to postpone. Can she use the same application for she has to re-apply with the amended receipt #?

 

3. My wife originally selected the interview place as Delhi, but I am from Kolkata. Can she change the place for rescheduling the interview?

 

Thanks.

1. Amended.

2. She could call them and update the amended receipt number. Even otherwise it will not be a problem.

3. I believe yes.

Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. Sorry to bother again, but have one more question:

 

My amendment is not yet approved, but I put in the premium processing on last Monday. I will be traveling in 1st week of Feb, but in case it still does not get approved, can I still go ahead with the interview with the amendment receipt?
 
Thanks

You would need your amended petition's I797 approval notice when going for visa interview.
