H1B Extension and H4 new application

Recommended Posts


    My H1B extension is approved recently, my family is in India and they don't have any visa applied before. I want to start the H4 dependent visa for my spouse and kids. 

   I am going for H1B extension stamping next month i am not dropbox eligible. Can i take my family also with me for stamping i will be doing H1B extension stamping and for my family its new H4 application stamping. Is it possible or my family need to wait until my stamping is done.

In my case I always took my wife H4 along with me to H1B and H4 stamping. But in my case, I always applied for H4 along with my H1B and got both of them approved. In your case h4 do not have any approvals. You can start H1B process and see add H4 as dependents. If it allow ( my only concern what you will give for petition number for H4) then H1B and H4 can go interview at same time.

If not possible first H1B and then H4 can go for interview.
