H4 for HIB which start from October


Recommended Posts


I am on OPT which is getting expired on JUL-13. I am going to apply for H1B in this April and the start date of it will be from OCT-13.

The problem here is, I am going to india in month of May for marriage and will be back in 1st week of June assuming there wont be any issues at immigration as I still had valid visa.

On what Visa I can bring my wife?

1. I cannot apply F4 as my visa is going to expire in July

2. If I need to bring her on H4, I need to wait until October and apply Visa thereafter.

Can I apply H4 for her as my H1B will get approved in April and bring her in June?

If she comes through visiting or travel Visa, Will there be any problem in future whil converting into H4?

Or is there any other way I can bring her as soon as possible?

Please help.
