Question - My H1B expires in March 2019. I already received an extension beyond that (approved I-797). Can I get the visa stamping done before my current visa expires? (i.e. before March?)

Planning a visit to India before March so thinking of doing a dropbox. But not sure if its allowed.

Yes you can. I believe the timeline is maximum of 6 months before expiry.

Yes you can

Your extension is valid from when it gets approved. The previous visa period doesn’t matter. So yes you can get the visa stamped.

Muchas Gracias Amigos!
