My prior stamped H1B visa for India has expired on 01 Aug 2016 and got an extension on the same category and with the same employer for 3 years. I am planning a trip to India on July 2017 and have plans to get my current visa stamped on 07 July 2017. In that process I want to avail the "Drop Box Facility". So I want to know how is the 12 months calculated. Does the last month qualify as in my case, because I am just within the 12 month range I suppose. And the same(including dates) applies for my spouse as well except she is on H4. Taken into consideration that all the other criteria for Drop Box eligibility are met do we (me and my spouse) both qualify for the drop box based the dates given.
