Hi All,

I have a question about my H1B Interview Waiver Program in India. Below are the facts & Questions.

My H1B Stamped Visa Expired in Jan 2016, however my Passport was expiring in July 2015 so at the port of Entry the officer stamped the entry only till July 2015.  I am planning to go to India in Nov 2016 for stamping again.

1) I have a previous U.S. visa in the same class as the visa for which I wish to apply--> YES
2) My most recent visa was issued in India -- YES
3) I received my visa after January 1, 2008 -- YES
4) My prior visa is not annotated “Clearance Received” or “Department Authorization”. -- YES
5) My most recent visa (in the same class for which I am applying) was issued on or after my 14th birthday -- YES
6) I have no refusals for a visa in any class after my most recent visa issuance -- YES
7) 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.-- WHAT SHOULD I MENTION HERE?

I meet all the other requirements for Drop Box, but I dont know if I should answer for the question related to visa validity / expired within 12 months.

Please advise.

Thanks,

Bond

Bond,

You will qualify for dropbox based on the information provided by you. Your passport expiry and POE dates have nothing to do with the dropbox.
