H4 Visa stamping IWP eligibility


Recommended Posts



My last visa stamping for H1B was in Jan 2015 and is valid till Nov 2016. But by May 2015, i resigned the job and applied for COS to H4. Now I am in H4.


I am going to India now and has to get H4 Visa stamped. I wanted to see if i am eligible for IWP, as my H1B visa is valid till NOV 2016?  The confusion here is because I have H1B valid but not H4.


The IWP program says

"If I am applying for an H or L (individual) or R visa, my prior visa in the same class is still valid or expired within the last 12 months."

It doesn't say it has to be H4.


My last H4 visa was stamped in May 2010 and expired in Sep 2010.
