    Passport renewal needed or not

    Hi friends

    I have a unique question for which i am finding it hard to get answer. My current passport is expiring on 17th August 2019. I am having an appointment at the Chennai consulate for visa stamping for my approved i-797 in December. I am currently in the US and i am planning to travel to India in December and come back my mid January. I was planning to renew my passport after i come back to US in January. But now i was reconsidering to renew my passport now while im the US before i travel in December.

    So my question here is ,in my ds160, i filled the current passport number in the passport details section . If i renew my passport, i would surely get a new passport number. So is it recommended to renew the passport now as the ds160 has the current passport number. And if i renew my passport, i am having a doubt I might have an issue While stamping as ds160 has current passport number?

    If i consider not to renew my passport now and renew it after coming back to US in January, will it be a problem to reenter the USA with a 7 month to expiry passport?

    Please guide me here as to what to do. I shall appreciate any responses. Looking forward to the responses.
