Ask Sophie: Do I qualify for visa stamping program in the U.S.?

Dear Sophie,

I am currently employed in the U.S. on an H-1B visa, which I received in 2022. However, I do not have an H-1B visa stamp in my passport as I changed my status from an F-1 student to an H-1B professional while in the U.S. Though I believe I am eligible for an interview waiver at the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, I have not traveled outside the U.S. due to uncertainty about receiving the waiver and potential delays in returning to my job. I recently heard about a new visa stamping program launching soon in the U.S. Do I qualify?
