H4 Visa during H1B ammendment in Process


Recommended Posts


I have H1B with my employer approved untill 2021 May and stamping is done. Recently I have changed the project which my Ammendment is in process.
So in this case Can I apply for H4 Visa? OR
I need to wait for Ammendment and then only I need to apply for H4?

Because my understanding was since I am with my employer and stamping is done I am OK to apply for H4.

Please suggest

thanks for the replies. But,  H4 dependent visa for my wife while my H1B Amendment only is in process. I hope I am clear now. Please suggest.

Visa is something you apply at the consulate. If that is what you are asking for then its better to wait for the amendment to be approved before applying for her H4 visa interview at the consulate. 

If she is already in US with you and you are applying for her H4 extension, then you can do that while your amendment is under process at USCIS.

Sorry for the confusion Caused. I am phrasing entire Question again.

Myself on H1B which is stamped and expires 2021. Due to Project change recently I have filed Amendment which I got receipt number and in process.

So, in this case Can I apply for H4 Dependent Visa  to my wife who is in India? Do I need to wait for "Ammendment" Approval?

Sorry Once again. Please Suggest.
