H4 Visa interview when spouse's H1B visa is pending a 221g AP

Recommended Posts


I got my H1B petition extended successfully in Feb 2016. It is valid until Dec 2018. I came to India for a vacation and attended my H1B Visa interview at USA consulate in chennai, India on 2nd Sept 2016. I got an 221g RFE (mentioned as “administrative processing”). The VO asked for few documents & they returned all those documents after 2 weeks. But they didn't ask me to submit my passport. S0 still waiting to hear back from the USA consulate.

Right now my wife is planning to attend the H4 visa interview based on my latest approved H1B petition at the same USA consulate in Chennai, India.

1. Can she attend the visa interview when my visa application is still under “administrative processing”?

2. Please advice if it would be better for my wife to attend the H4 visa interview right away OR wait until my H1B visa is approved?

Thanks in advance,
