Recommended Posts

Hello Friends,

I have got H1-B visa stamping at Chennai FEB-2011 [Valid till SEP-2013]  and came to USA and  
working here. I did not go for Stamping after FEB-2011.  
I am planning to visit Chennai and got my H1-B visa stamping. 

My I-797 was valid till OCT-2013 [ From previous employer #2]  
My I-797 was valid from JAN-2012 to JAN-2015 [From Previous employer #1]  
My I-797 was valid from OCT-2012 to OCT-2015 [From my current employer]  
My I-797 is valid from OCT-2015 to APR-2018. [From my current employer]  

When I am filing, the USTRAVELDOCS. I have got the following question. 

Eligibility Criteria for all applicants except child below 14 years of age and applicant above 80 years of age or older:


  • I have a previous U.S. visa in the same class as the visa for which I wish to apply - YES
  • My most recent visa was issued in India - YES
  • I received my visa after January 1, 2008 - YES
  • My prior visa is not annotated “Clearance Received” or “Department Authorization”. - YES
  • My most recent visa (in the same class for which I am applying) was issued on or after my 14th birthday - YES
  • I have no refusals for a visa in any class after my most recent visa issuance - YES
  • If I am applying for an H or L (individual) or R visa, my prior visa in the same class is still valid or expired within the last 12 months. - NO

For the last question my answer is NO . Is it correct?

Please help me.
