Travel to India while H4 Ext is in Process


Recommended Posts


My H1 is approved on Apr 7th whereas my wife's H4 (Her current H4 is till Aug 2017) is still under process. We are planning to go to India on Apr 20th. According to my Attorney, its not a problem for my wife to travel and she can go to stamping with my approved H1B in India and can come back to US. Request you guys to clarify on below questions:

1. Is it true that her current H4 processing gets cancelled if she travels out (as I94 is linked to H4 Extension)?

2. Are both of us eligible for Drop Box? (I didn't change my company since my last stamping in India. We both will be going to same consulate again, where we were stamped earlier).

Appreciate your Advice.
