H1 to L1A Approval, question if stamping required

Recommended Posts

Hi Murthy Team,

Could you please help me with the below queries .


My situation is

I have my H1B stamped until Dec-2021.

My company applied for my  H1B to L1A transfer petition and it got approved last week with the I-94 (COS) . My wife  is currently in India and she has H4 stamped until Dec-2021. Since She was in India my company didn’t apply for her H4 to L2 transfer.

My question is

  1. My wife is planning to travel US in April , should she go for new L2 stamping before travel?  or can she travel with H4 ?
  2. If my wife goes for L2 stamping . At this point I don’t have my L1A stamped in my passport. I only have approved L1A - i797 with I94  . Can she go for stamping with my approved I-797 alone?  Or should she need to carry a copy of my L1A stamped passport copy ?  ( My worry is should I need to go for stamping before she goes for stamping ).

You are on L1 now, so your wife would have to get an L2 visa to be able to enter.

She has to show that you are in valid L1 status. You don't need to have a visa stamp.
