H-4 Visa Spouse & Children

Family members of the H-1B foreign worker are admitted to the United States in the H-4 category. Qualifying family members include only the spouse and unmarried children under 21 years old. H-4 dependents are admitted for the same period of time for which the H-1B foreign worker is admitted. H-4 dependents may alternatively be admitted in other nonimmigrant categories for which they qualify. H-4 dependents may undertake studies while remaining in the H-4 category, however, they may not engage in any form of employment.

Hello Sir,

I have got my son's visa stamping appointment scheduled on March 2023, but my visa is going to be expired by June 2023. My Wife recently got her H1B approved and she has her expiry date in Oct 2023. Both My wife and I are working with different employers. Is it add my son as a dependent of my wife, instead of me and get the H4 stamped against my wife's H1B ? Please note, my son had his previous H4 against my petition and my employer paid for the visa stamping appointment on March 2023.

Hi Rajiv, I'm in the H1B extension, and my dependents (Spouse + Son) are in the H4 extension. Now the question is due to various reasons, we are going to India separately and then returning, wanted to get visa stamping. First, I will go next to my spouse and after my son. Will this be ok if My son goes separately to the consulate for H4 visa stamping after us? Is there any risk involved in getting visa stamping for my son going separately?

Looking for a suggestion: I am on H1B visa and booked my initial DS160 along with H4 for visa appointment in Nov this year, and am eligible for dropbox. Now, I have a emergency India travel (as my Dad is not doing well), and rescheduled my H1B visa next month in Chennai. But I could see that H4 is also scheduled along with me. However, I am not taking my dependent (as we don't want to miss her middle school). Questions: 1. Can I take my dependant's Passport along with my H1B for drop-off? 2. I have taken the visa slot in Chennai, can I drop it in Hyderabad location?

Greetings! I came to the US on a H4 visa (stamp is still valid for another two years/My husband's H1B is still valid for 2 more years) and I'm now working with a cap-exempt employer who filed my H1B petition, which was approved. Is it possible for me to leave the country and return with the H4 stamp, or do I need to go for visa interview and have my H1B visa stamped on my passport to re-enter?

And unfortunately for most, they said no unless I (as an H1B holder) has started to apply for Green Card. Just want to confirm if that's the case.

My current H1B is expiring in Oct 2023 and I already have an approved H1B extension notice until 2026 October. My wife is planning to apply for H4 Visa in June and fly to US in July this year. Below are my questions:

A. Will US consulate grant her H4 visa based on current or extended H1 approval notice? What would be the expiration date of her H4 visa in this case.

B. If her H4 visa is granted until Oct 2023, will she able to live in US beyond that date, given I have my approved H1B notice?

C. If her H4 visa is approved until Oct 2026, will she be able to travel to US in July or would she have to wait until Oct 2023?

D. If she gets her H4 approved until Oct 2023 this year, can she apply for EAD when she flies to US in July? In short, will she be able to apply for an EAD if her H4 stamping expires in Oct 2023? (I have both I-140 and H1B extension approvals) Will H4 EAD expiration date depends on her H4 stamping validity date or my H1B extension approval date? (Oct 2026)

Hello Rajiv sir,

I hope you're doing well and thank you for having this platform. I have a question regarding H4 visa to F1 visa conversion. My wife is on H4 visa and she would like to do a Master's. My question is can she start a Master's degree on H4 visa and later (after few weeks/semester) can she apply for change of status to F-1 visa? Also, can she study full time Master's at Day-1 CPT universities such as Harrisburg/ Trine University etc. (I understand, she won't do internships for first 2 semesters though)? Since most of these universities allows a hybrid mode of college where one need to attend classes in person few times a month or semester. Would there be any problem to do this? Please advise. Thank you.
