Question

I am an Indian citizen working in the US on H1B. My H1B got approved in 2020 and since then I haven't traveled outside the country. I am traveling to India in December of 2022 for wedding. My visa stamping process qualifies for a Dropbox process, and after a lot of difficulty, I found an appointment on Dec 6. However, my passport expires in March 2023 and I can now renew my passport because I have less than 6 months before it expires. I am concerned that if I renew my passport now, will it impact my visa stamping process in anyway since that appointment was made using my existing passport details? What would you recommend? Also, if I apply for passport renewal will I get it before December?
