2nd Time H1b visa stamping with previous Public Intoxication Case

Hi @Kalpesh_Dalwadi / @anil_am22

I am on H1B visa and i will be going for visa stamping in India soon and currently in the process of filling out DS-160. This will be my 2nd time as i have gone through in-person interview before so probably will be a drop box this time.

Also i have received 221g during first time since i was arrested for public intoxication charge ( The case was deferred and dismissed) and i had to go through medical evaluation and the reports were sent to the consular and i got the visa as well.

Since this is my 2nd time, i wanted to get clarification on the following

  • Do i need to select “yes” again in the DS-160 question - Have you ever been arrested or convicted for any offense or crime, even though subject of a pardon, amnesty, or other similar action? and explain the details.

  • Do i need to go through the process again?

Please help and if any members had gone through a similar situation, please advise.

Thanks again to this wonderful forum for helping out on the immigration topics.

HI @Kalpesh_Dalwadi / @anil_am22 / @AM22Tech_Admin - please help with the above que.


You may or may not get 221g this time for the same reason, irrespective keep all the supporting documents ready so if requested by the CO you can submit asap.
