how is H4 visa duration determined?


Recommended Posts

Normally, the consulate will issue an H-4 visa valid through the expiration date of the H-1 petition. But, I have seen cases where they limit the H-4 visa to the same date as that of the H-1.

Regardless, in most circumstances, a dependent of an H-1 cannot remain in valid H-4 status if the H-1 is out of status and not in a period of authorized stay.
