Planning to go back to India for my H1B visa stamping (in New Delhi). Any potential risk of denial during stamping? My most recent H1B extension had an RFE that got cleared. Pretty nervous

I got my Visa stamping done( H1B ext )in New Delhi in Jan this year.. pretty smooth process.. if you are eligible for documents drop off it only takes 5mins at the counter.. got passport back in a week. Good luck!!

No there isn’t an appointment necessary. As you complete your visa application and pay the visa fees online there are some questions to answer and if your responses meet the criteria then you are eligible for Dropbox.

Just a month ago, I’ve completed my visa stamping in Hyderabad. Dropped the docs on Monday, visa was granted and collected the passport by Friday. Super fast and easy.

Why are you worrying ? Do you have anything to hide or any key document you cannot provide ? Otherwise, it’s going to be very easy. Have a great trip.

Thank you all for your responses, this is helpful. I am not eligible for Dropbox and am generally nervous regarding the whole process. I’ve been hearing/reading some horror stories off late regarding client verification, etc. which has caused rejections. My case is pretty straightforward but I’m dreading the thought of admin review or rejections

Admin review isn't always bad as expected. Sometimes it can be a few days. The first stamping can always be a little challenging but fear not. I got my visa stamped in London last year and this year I'm planning to head to Mexico City to get stamped. You'll be fine!

Came back a month ago for H1B visa stamping, and still stuck at Admin Processing... It has already been 5 weeks...

Ugh, sounds like a nightmare. Any details? Is this your first stamping? Did they ask for any additional documents or client verification?
