Are h-4 and h-1b visas considered to be of the same class?


Recommended Posts

I'm currently in the US on h1-b but plan to travel to India next month and move to h-4 status. I don't have a h-4 visa stamp in my passports. I'm trying to determine my eligibility for the dropbox program which includes two criteria: 
1. I have a previous U.S. visa in the same class as the visa for which I wish to apply 
2. 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. 

If h-4 and h-1b are considered the same "class", then I would be eligible. Are they the same class?
