H4 visa appointment after two f1 rejection

Recommended Posts


I am on a H1B visa which is up for extension in Aug’2019. I am currently working in the US.

My husband who is in India applied for F1 twice and got rejected in Early December and 1st week of january respectively.

We are now planning to apply for an H4 visa and is in progress to finalize a date. Couple of questions:

a) Can he take a H4 visa interview date in first week of February (~1 month after F1 rejection)?

b) Will having only 6 months left on my current H1B is an issue for visa approval?

thanks for your help!

a) Whenever the dates are available.

b) It is "usually" not an issue where primary applicant is on H1b like statuses. 

Your husbands desperate attempts to come as a F1 student may raise a concern on H4 but if the primary purpose is to be with you , he should be okay(though there is a high possibility of 221g/admin processing). Remember that for all immigration related issues, one must consult a competent lawyer.
