As a reminder, on January 29, 2024 at 12:00 pm (ET), The U.S. Department of State (DOS) is launching its the stateside visa renewal pilot program available to certain H-1B principals.
In advance of this launch, the DOS’ CEAC system is allowing participants to pre-load their DS-160 applications. Those intending to do so should go to https://ceac.state.gov/GenNIV/Default.aspx and select “U.S. – Domestic” from the dropdown box. From here, an additional box will pop up with the following information before moving on to the online DS-160 application.
For those potentially eligible for this pilot program, please see our earlier post regarding qualifications for this H-1B stateside visa processing.
