H1B stamping for Canadian husband and H4 stamping for Bangladeshi wife

Recommended Posts

Please suggest me for the following situation.

I took the schedule for my H1B and my wife's H4 stamping in London consulate. The interview is scheduled next week. However, I just found that H1B stamping is NOT required for Canadian citizens, they are simply issued an I-94 from the POE. 

In my H1B approval notice, it is mentioned that the country of birth is Bangladesh (I don't use Bangladeshi passport from 2014 since I became a Canadian citizen) and also mentions Consulate/POE is London. Does it mean I must be interviewed at London consulate even though I am a Canadian citizen ? 

Note that, my wife is a Bangladeshi citizen, so she will need to go to the embassy for interview and get H4 stamped on her passport. So should I cancel my appointment (we scheduled together) and just keep her appointment ? If that is the case, then can she get an H4 visa using my H1B approval notice even before I get my I-94 at the POE (so that we can enter USA together)?  

I am confused now, please suggest me the plan of action.

You are correct about Canadian citizens not requiring a visa to enter the US

They might ask her to attend in Bangladesh (her citizenship/passport country) , if she doesn't have  a resident status in UK.  How did you apply for Interview at London?

Good luck!

we got our visa h1 and h4 both from london. As long as you are legally living in UK with a valid visa (she is on her spouse visa via my work visa) it is fine to apply for stamping in UK
