H4 Travelling to India and returning to US with old Employer stamping on Passport

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 


I originally got my Visa(H1b) stamped with Employer A(in India) and got H4 for my wife as well through the same employer(A). Both our Visas were Valid until(31st Dec 2013). We traveled in Aug 2013 to the US. Employer A whilst we were in US filed our extensions and our both our Visas(H1b and H4) got extended till Nov 2016. 


So, In May 2014, I transferred my H1b and H4 to another employer(B) in the US and got new I94 dates(End of March 2017). 


Now, my wife has to travel to India for about 20 days. My wife's passport has H4 Visa stamped by my first employer(A). 


My Question is, should my wife go for stamping before coming back to the US or, can my wife travel to India and return to the US without stamping?- I have all the I797 approvals and petitions available for me and my wife.  


Please advise on this.

Hi Jairichi, 


Thanks for the reply. The Stamped visa on her Passport is expired(31st Dec 2013) but she has a valid I797 which is valid until March 2017. Can she still travel without any issues? 

She needs a valid H4 visa and a copy of your I797.
