H1B stamping dropbox eligibility

asked Nov 15, 2016 in H1B: Visa Stamping by anonymous

I am with my Current Employer for last 3 years.

I had my H1B stamping from my current employer on Jan 2015, which expired on Oct 2016.

I just received my H1B Extension renewal in Nov 2016 and going to India in Jan 2017.

Am I qualified for H1B Visa Stamping via Dropbox?

Kindly advise.

Thank you,
