    Has anyone used Visa Revalidation options as listed below for H1B? This looks different from AVR. Any experiences?

    Visa Revalidation through a U.S. consulate:
    In order to be eligible for Visa Revalidation through a U.S. consulate, you must meet the following requirements
    1. you must apply for visa revalidation at the U.S. consulate where you obtained your original visa;
    2. you must have a valid passport; and
    3. you must be prepared to travel to the U.S. consulate for an interview if required.
    Visa Revalidation through the State Department: In order to be eligible for Visa Revalidation through the State Department, you must meet the following requirements:
    • you must be in either E, H, L, O, or P status;
    • your passport must be valid for at least six (6) months;
    • your visa must either be valid for sixty (60) days or less, or
    • your visa must have expired for no more than twelve (12) months; and finally
    • you must travel abroad for only a short time period and intend to return to the U.S. with the reissued visa.

    Thanks Ron. That was my understanding as well. The dates on the website threw me off.
