oh Thank you Anil. Because of the no availability of appointments we are going to land in this situation. We already made the payments and are waiting for the drop box appointments. If we don’t get it before 22nd Aug do I need to redo ds160 for my son and make one more payment?

Hello, My situation is as below
I am alone qualified for the H1B drop-box (interview waiver) based on the questions asked during the appointment booking as I have a valid B1.
Below are the details regarding my wife and kids. Please let me know if we all 4 are eligible for the DROPBOX option?
Wife: Holds an H1B visa which expired on date as - August 2020, without any annotated : “Clearance received” or “Department authorization”.
KIDS: a Girl child 8 years 6 months old and a boy child 2 years 6months without any old visas.
Myself: holding a valid B1.
Could you please let me know if we all four are eligible for the DROPBOX option?
Thank you

Hi, Am currently on H4 Visa. h4 visa recent stamping is done in canada never in India (Only F1 was done in India initially). So, could please let me know if i am eligible for dropbox?

Did you check your dropbox eligibility using the app?

Can you advise further on question “My same visa (that I plan to apply for) was denied by US embassy in past (anytime).”?
My situation, My H1B VISA stamping in the year 2008, got 221(g), replied with relevant documentation, and Didn’t receive any reply on that from Embassy or USCIS.
Later in the year 2017, Applied for another H1b with different employer (Went through all the process again , lottery, Petition approval, stamping). It was approved and stamped.and, this is latest VISA stamp on my passport.
In this scenario, What do I need to answer for “My same visa (that I plan to apply for) was denied by US embassy in past (anytime).”?
Thank you

It sounds like your visa was never denied.
