My H1B got picked and approved this year. I am on my initial OPT. I want to go to India for Visa Stamping in a month or two. From what I understand my change of status occurs on October 1st. I have a full-time job. I completed my Masters in December 2017. Is there any guide for filling the DS-160? There are a few questions that I am unsure of like – mailing address (should it be US or India address), travel plans, estimated arrival date.
- Address: You would be attending the H1B Visa interview in India, so the address would be the local India Address. This goes to H4 or H4 to F1 as well.
- Travel Plans: Since you are already living and working in the US, you would buy a Round Trip Ticket (I assume), so that would be the travel plans.
- Estimated Arrival Date – Your planned return date as per the return ticket.
