H1B stamping with renewed passport

Recommended Posts

Hello Experts,
I have sent my passport for renewal as it is expiring in Nov,2014.My Visa expired in Dec,2013.My I797( first one based of I140) is valid until Dec,2016.I am visiting India(Odisha) in June,2014. Here are my questions:

1) Do i need to specify the old passport number or new one in DS160
2) Do i still qualify for dropbox. If yes, does the DS160 process prompt me for that?.Id dropbox a compulsion.
3) Because the I797 is based of I140, do i need to carry the copy of I140 as well.
4) In case of interview or Dropbox, do i need to submit/carry both the passports.

I would appreciate if some one can help me with these questions.

Thanks,
Sujan

3. Yes.

 Thanks So much - Where will i get the option for drop box. Is it some where while filling the DS160 form.

Does dropbox have any specific benefit over interview or viceversa. Because i am going to India for just a 2 week trip, not sure which one would be a better option.
