H-4 Visa Transfer And Renewal


Recommended Posts

I had a valid H1B petition from employer A till Dec 2019.
My wife had a H-4 visa stamped first time from employer A till Dec 2019.

I changed my employer to employer B and H1B is valid till Sept 2022.
I asked my employer to change my wife H-4 visa to employer B. They suggested me, “Applying H4 visa at consulate will be faster”

I have travel plans to India, I have few questions regarding the suggestion

  1. Will it be drop box for H4 visa?
  2. Is H4 petition required for this as she has not received from my previous employer as it was first time stamping. Her passport was stamped with my previous employer H4 visa?
  3. Time Frame involved in doing this at consulate?

1. Yes.

2. Not needed. Your I-797 is enough.

3. 2 to 3 weeks from the dropbox date.
