H4 Visa after filing fresh H1B


Recommended Posts


I am in India and applied for H1B 2015. It is picked in lottery and I am waiting for approval. Now, can I take H4 visa (in May 2014) and visit US meanwhile? Once my H1B is approved should I comeback to India for stamping? Also, Is this risky and why?

Yes, you can enter US on H4 visa. To be able to start work on H1B status either you exit and enter US with a H1B visa or employer files change of status and pays H1B fee again.
