Please help : Regarding Visa appointment, Wrong Category : Visa Renewal or New Visa
 
I got my H1B Petition approved and have been working on OPT status since August. I made a Visa appoitment for tommorow and while taking the appointment I chose the Visa Renewal category instead of a new H1B visa.
My interview is tommorow and I am not able to change or cancel the date as in Delhi it needs to be done 2 working days before.

I want to know if anyone has gone though a similar experience and what should I do?

Looking forward to your replies!

Thanks!

Kanishk

Best thing would be to get there and explain your situation to the visa officers or front desk staff. Explain them you made a honest mistake and see if your appt can still be accomodated. Try to convince them somehow, tell about your travel plans, say job is in line if you don't get back in time etc and hope they honor your request. Anyway, Good Luck.

I had the same problems 3 weeks back for B'bay. We had to submit all papers atleast 5 days in advance to VFS office in Ahmedabad. They refused to accept my papers. I had to cancel that application and submit a new one with Regular H1B instead of Visa Renewal. Luckily, VFS accepted my application papers which i sent to my relatives in email. I signed the papers once i reached consulate.
