H-4 for Canadian Citizen

Question details

Can a Canadian citizen get H-4 stamping at the border? What is the procedure and what documents are required for the process? What are the risks involved to get H-4 at border, opposed to filing for adjustment of status?


Canadian citizens can apply for H-4 at the border. Typically, CBP would require proof of relationship like marriage cert and evidence of H-1 approval and status. In my experience, CBP does help people over the phone. Try calling the port field office, for instance, Buffalo: http://www.cbp.gov/contact/ports/field-office/buffalo
