New I-797, H4 without H1-B visa stamping


Recommended Posts


Here is my situation:
I have valid H1-B visa stamping till 09/10/2014. I received a I-797A Notice of Action with validity from 09/11/2014 till 03/15/2015. I am going to India next week to get married and will be returning on 08/31/2014. During my stay in India, I am planning to apply for H4 for my wife at Hyderabad Consulate based on the new I-797 extension that I received. Though I am eligible for Interview waiver (drop-box process) as I with the same employer, I don't have any plans to go for Visa renewal stamping with the new extension because I am currently working on Internal product development projects and suspect the Visa officer might have issues issuing me a renewal.


My Question:

Will my wife face any issue during her H4 visa interview because of me not opting for H1-b Visa renewal stamping after receiving extension of stay notice??



I'd appreciate if someone provide inputs to my question.
