    Hi folks,
    I came to India in June '16. Got 221G...status is still under admin processing.

    Meanwhile, I got a full time job with another company in US. They filed my H1B and it has got approved. Now need to go for stamping for my new H1B.

    I have a question regarding DS-160 form:
    1) What should I write as my current employer?

    In DS-160, there is a field for current employer. What should I write there. Should it be my new H1B employer or old H1 company for which i receive 221G? I am not working for any company in India currently.

    If I say my current employer as my new H1b company, then what should be my previous employer end date?

    I have few more questions:

    2) Do I need to carry a letter to the consulate to withdraw the old visa application? What are the documents from the old application that need to be carried along with?

    3) Does the old H1b employer need to write to USCIS to withdraw the previous H1B petition that was filed for me?

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
