Apply for visa 90 days prior to employment start date: US Embassy
In an advisory to visa applicants in India, the United States (US) Embassy has asked visa applicants to apply up to 90 days before their employment begins.
"Applying for your work #USvisa? You can apply up to 90 days before the employment start date noted on your I-797 form," the US Embassy wrote in a tweet.
The I-797 form is a document the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) uses "to communicate with applicants/petitioners or convey an immigration benefit," reads the USCIS website.
