H4 is approved, H1 is pending. Can I apply for B2?


Recommended Posts


Need a help regarding my matter. I got my spouse's H4 extension approval last month but my H1B extension is still pending and I don't think it will be approved in next couple of weeks. My spouse needs to travel soon because of my health issue. I asked my employer to change the status to premium for my H1B extension but the request is denied saying that since H4 is approved, you should get H1 approval in some time.  Without H1 approval, she can not go for visa stamping.

I just want to know what if I apply for B2 (visitor visa) for my spouse and make her travel as a visitor. Will that be an issue? Is there any chance of rejection of B2 since H4 is approved? 

please help.
