H1b to H4 COS pending in US_interview scheduled in India


Recommended Posts

My husband laid off on H1b in June 2020. We have applied H4 COS for him (with my H1b) in August 2020. I have few queries considering h1 to h4 COS is taking very long. We have scheduled an H4 visa interview to consular in India but considering embassy’s are open for limited number of employment based visa appointments, I have few queries:

1. Since appointments are for limited numbers, does he qualify for H1->h4 cos. or are they only for emergency situations . I am not finding clarity on this (read exceptions too). We need to make decision for his travel since once he is out of US , his application in US will be barred.
2. What are the risk factors involved and chances of approval if he travels to India for this consular appointment.
3. Which option is better: Wait in USA only for his COS approval Or wait for embassy to have normal operations Or attend this interview in India.
