Question

I live in US and have an approved i797 (H1B) and a scheduled drop box appointment for Visa Stamping on March 30th in Delhi (India). My latest visa stamp was H4 and I have held H1B visa stamp before that (2016-2019). So I went from F1 to H1 to H4 to H1 (now).... Question: 1) I was on H4 status/visa in June 2020 when former President Trump issued the travel ban valid until March 31st, 2021. But now I will be going for H1B stamping (this will not be my first H1B stamp though). Does this travel ban apply to me ? 2) Acc. to https://www.ustraveldocs.com/in/renew-visa.html The condition is if you have held same visa category anytime in past 48 months you are eligible. My most recent visa stamp on my passport is for H4 but my last H1B stamp (2016-2019) falls within 48 months eligibility criteria for Dropbox. Just want to make sure if I am reading it right and am eligible for Drop Box. Thanks!
