Yes, if you have annotation on the visa you don’t need additional approval for travel.

I got h1b visa and received with stamping on July 2021 with NIE approval. Till now i didn’t travel to USA .

My dependents can book emergency slot and can go for interview now because i want to take them with me when i travel.

Could you please help me on above query

If you can get an appointment, then yes, go ahead and get it done.

Thanks for your response Anil. I will check as you said. From last few months i dont see normal slots in Hyderabad, India. Are they opening normal slots or present only opening emergency slots. Could you please confirm me.
