  1. Hello all,

    I'm currently on F1 visa which is expiring in a month. I'm planning to change my status to H4.

    Can I apply my H4 and H4 EAD along with my spouse's H1B amendment in Premium? as my spouse's title and salary changed.

    Processing times for COS and H4 are nearly 6 to 8  months. So, we are looking for options.

    Please suggest the best option.


    Help is appreciated.


    Thank you.




  2. Hello,

    I entered Date of Birth wrong in the applicant info. Is there a way to update it without rescheduling the slot? 

    Instructions to change applicant and appointment information

    The appointment must be canceled to edit applicant information. Return to the Applicant Summary Page and click Cancel Appointment. After the appointment is canceled click on the pencil link to edit all applicant information answers. Please note that by canceling your appointment you may not be able to reschedule for the same date and time.


    I can not reschedule a different slot because slots are not available in near future and I have made my plans already. Is it Ok to attend the interview without updating DOB? Will it affect my VISA application approval?

    Please help me out.

    I was hoping someone could help me with my situation.

    I am on an F1 visa and I got married (court marriage) in October 2011 in the United States. My husband is on an H1B visa. I am leaving to India in December and will need to go to the consulate to change my visa from an F1 to a H4. My questions are as follows:

    1. Will I need to fill in the 'Change of Status' form I-539, even thought my student visa is valid till December?

    2. I have pictures taken with the judge who married us. Would that be enough proof to get my H4 stamped at the Chennai consulate?

    3. Is my marriage certificate from the United States valid at the consulate, or will I need a marriage certificate from India?

    4. What documents will I need at the Consulate?

    Any additional information that you can give me that will help me while changing my status.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello kuku2011,


    I'm in the same situation and I would like to know how the stamping process went.

    We have the US court marriage certificate but not wedding album and invitation card. We have a couple of pictures with the Judge who certified our marriage.

    1)Did VO ask you any of those proofs?

    2) Is US marriage certificate valid or do we need to get the certificate from India?


    Please help.
