I went for H1B drop box In March,2020 and received 221g. Consulates in india not accepting any 221g F2F interviews for submission of documents. Old petition is expiring this December, so applied for new H1B extn last week and got approval thru consular processing in india. Question, is the new petition eligible for Dropbox when the old one is still pending with 221g? Consulates are accepting new extensions thru dropbox but they are not processing old 221gs currently. Kindly clarify/help on my case as i stranded in india last 7 months with family separation. Thanks in advance.
Thanks Anil. The app says eligible. Do I need to withdraw my old or pending application which is stuck with 221G before i apply for second drop box using new petition? Also any downstream impact if i withdraw my old application. Appreciate any help on clarifying this.
Its your choice.
The chances are high that second application will also get form 221g.
Dropbox does not mean that you can skip form 221g.
