H-1B and H-4 Applied together, H-1B approved not H-4


Recommended Posts

Can a person currently on H1 , has been working  in USA for 2+years, apply for H4 (Spouse is on H1), take a break for few months and then apply for H1 again?

On applying H1, will it again go through the application process from the scratch meaning , should it go thru lottery process (may or may not get picked)

or it is just activating H1 status by applying ?

How does this H1 to H4 and then back to H1 process work?

I have applied both H1-B and H-4, H1-B in premium processing.


H1-B is approved and H-4 is still pending.


When can I expect the approval for H-4

Please provide an update whether you recieved H4 approval and how long it took?
