I'm currently in the U.S since 1.5 years and I am considering coming back to India for 1-month (possibly May) due to health reasons.
Since my H1B had expired last year and I was given a 1 year extension, I understand that I would have to get my Visa stamped again before re-entry into the U.S.
The questions on which I don't have any clarity are:
1) I had got my first stamp on the H1B visa at the Chennai Consulate. Will I be eligible for dropbox in Mumbai?
2) Also, since my visa expires on Aug, 2017 and since my current role is 'Computer Programmer' (15-1131), do you see any risk in getting the stamping done on May 2017? Can there be an RFE for the second stamp?
Anyone who has already been through / witnessed a similar experience can provide valuable inputs.
