  1. Hi Team,

    I have my current H1b valid till August 2022. I got my H1b visa extended till August 2023. If I go for stamping now will I get extended till August 2022 or August 2023? In my DS160 I have mentioned my H1b details which is valid till 2022.

    Please advice.


  2. Greetings!!

    I am on H1b visa in US since December 21st 2014 and my visa expired in 17th June 2017. I am working for the same employer in US. I have a few questions and seeking your advice/support?
    1. Am I eligible for dropbox?
    2. Will you be able to help in filling the visa filling dates?
    3. I have my spouse and kids on H4B. Would you be able to help them also?
