B-1 to H-4 visa status change while in USA


Recommended Posts


My spouse entered US on B-1/B-2 visa. I am on H-1B visa, Please let me know if there are any risks of applying for change of visa status for my wife from B-1 to H-4 while staying in US. We came to US with in 5 days of our marriage, she has a valid B-1 visa so we did not apply for H-4 due to lack of time. She has a return ticket to India. Cost wise it turns out to be same if we apply here or in India. So, I would prefer the safe bet rather than take risk.

Please let me know whether it is same that we apply here in US or in India?

Thanks in advance for your time
