Hello Folks,

I am eligible for H1B DropBox, I am trying to find DropBox dates for Chennai consulate (Bangalore site drop off) , and the website says

< There are currently no appointments available.> under the “Schedule OFC Appointment” section, and it has a Back button .

Does this mean DropBox appointments are also closed ?

And, when I try to log-out and log-in and check the dates 4 or 5 times, it says <“You are approaching the maximum number of times you may view this page. Please complete your transaction at this time.”>

It looks like their website is broken ???

I tried to re-Login again using a different browser, and now their website says
< Error:Your account has been frozen for suspicious activity, and you will not be able to access it for up to 72 hours>

This is really undesirable for raising a false alarm, and I hope their website gets better . Did anyone face similar situations ? and Solutions ?

I am also trying to see if Canada or Mexico or any other country is open for USA H1B Visa appointments ??

I am expecting appointments from March to be honored not before. What’s your source that they might be canceled?

I understand that they are increasing the validity of MRV fees to September of 2022. But are they also allowing to schedule and cancel more than five times. I paid the fees in early 2020 but have ended up cancelling the appointments five times due to Covid 19. I am not sure if I can contact anyone to reactivate the fees. Please let me know. Thank you!
