As such, there is really no procedure for renewing the U.S. Visa. You will have to apply all over again, including paying all the fees and going for the personal interview.

However, if you are eligible to renew the visa as described below, you might have some advantages of early appointment and less scrutiny of your case.

Visa renewal appointments are available to visa applicants who:
1.Have the same class of U.S. Visa which is still valid or that has expired less than 12 months from the scheduled date of interview.
2.Wish to apply for the same visa class (e.g. Had an H1 work visa, now applying again for an H1 work visa).
3.Are Indian nationals (hold Indian passports).
4.Are residents in the New Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai or Hyderabad consular districts (Applicants attending the interview at the U.S. Consulate, Kolkata do not have an option to select the option for visa renewal. They may opt for a regular interview).

The following applicants do NOT qualify for appointments in the visa renewal category:
1.Applicants who have never had a U.S. Visa.
2.Applicants who have a U.S. Visa that expired more than 12 months ago.
3.Applicants whose last valid visa has been either cancelled or revoked.
4.Applicants applying for a different visa class (e.g. Had a F1 student visa, now applying for a H1 work visa).
5.Non Indian passport holders.
6.Applicants applying at the U.S. Consulate in Kolkata.
7.First time H4 or L2 applicants over 18 years of age. (If you have recently married an H1b or L1 visa holder but have never had a visa interview for an H4 visa or L2 visa, you may not schedule in the renewal category).
8.Applicants applying for more than one visa at the same time (e.g. F and B1/B2).
9.Applicants applying for entertainment/performance visas (P3 category).
10.Applicants applying for unskilled worker visas (H2b category).
11.Applicants who have lost their previous passports that had the valid or expired US visa.

All visa renewal applicants should bring the following documents to the Embassy/Consulate Consular Section on the day of their appointment:
1.Current, valid passport.
2.Passports containing previously issued U.S. Visas.
3.As applicable, I-797 (H and L), I-20 (F & M students), DS-2019 (J visa applicants).

Check out this useful website for information on renewing your USA VISA. www.unitedstatesvisas.gov
Applying for a VISA takes time. You will have to fill out an application and include all appropriate supporting materials. For instance, you may need to include a proof of residency as well as a proof of income. If you are renewing a VISA, it sounds like you have been through the process before. Be sure to follow all instructions on the application to the letter. Otherwise, you could have your application returned to you and you will have to go through the whole process again. Processing of your application varies but may take weeks or months. Therefore, send in all your materials well in advance of the deadline for renewal, especially if you need to use your supporting documents for another purpose in the near future. Since you are renewing the VISA that you already have, the process may take less work and time than the first time you applied.

Personally, I travelled to USA with ESTA. Just to clarify, an ESTA is not a visa. An ESTA is just an electronic authorisation to travel to the USA. If anyone is refused an ESTA, they then have to apply for a visa at the American Embassy. Here is more info on how to How to Check ESTA

It is a very easy process to renew your USA visa. Firstly, you will collect all the relevant documents and apply them online. The USA visa renewal process can take several weeks or even months depending on how quickly you can get an appointment at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. It is recommended that you start the visa renewal process as early as possible. When you get your visa and want to go to the USA, then you can contact Canada to US Immigration. They provide the best immigration service to you.

It depends on your situation. How can we advise you anything if we know nothing about you? Nevertheless, don't forget that you can go to the UK. I entered the university here and when it is so hard to study there, I usually use the best assignment help websites uk. I should say that there are good writers.

I have been working in the USA for about a year on a TN visa, which I have thanks to tnvisaexpert.com/  and when the moment comes when I need to change my visa, these guys do this job in a split second. This is very useful when there is such a service, when you can already go to work for a short time. They sweep even the most current news on their website, which is very important for people who earn money abroad
