Is H4 Stamping outside USA faster than H1B extension within USA?

Yes, at this time, the H4 stamping outside USA in US embassy using H1B approved i797 is much faster way to get H4. If you are planning to move to H4 using Change of status application, it is better to go out of USA and get it stamped in passport.

H4 visa stamping convert from H-1B eligible for Dropbox in US embassy?

Yes, you may be eligible. Check your Dropbox eligibility for India.

Travel outside USA when H4 extension is pending?

Normally, you should NOT travel while your H4 extension is pending. But, the GOOD thing with dependent visa is that if you travel, you can directly go to US embassy for interview and get H4 stamped. In that case, you would NOT need the H4 extension application that you have filed (and is pending) in US.

    Hi Anil,

    My case is a little bit different. I’m on COS H4 pending status and I have submited the H4 extension + H4 EAD with my husband’s H1 extension together under PP. My husband’s H1 got approval yesterday. I konw people usually get the H4 extension + H4 EAD approval together. Should I expected to recieve the approval soon? Or my COS H4 will take times? Thank you!

      Your H4 COS should be approved first to get H4 extension approval.

    Hi Anil ,
    I have couple of question regarding my H1 Extension , H4 Extension And H4 EAD

    Can you Suggest which option is good

    1) Considering my employer doesnt want to file the H4 EAD as per the organizational policies , I may either need to file H4 EAD seperately. If its the case , do i need to file the EAD after H1 Extension Approval or H1 Extension Reciept ? Which one is good option
    2) Considering my employer agrees to send the H4 EAD petetion as well along with my H1 Extension , Can i apply H1 Extension and H4 Extension and H4 EAD all Concurrently in Premium ?
    3) Is it good to go for H1 Extension in Premium , considering the RFE’s around the corner , will that affect the H4 EAD ?

    Hi Anil

    So our I539(H1 to H4) and EAD (I765)petition was filled on 20th Sep in VSC. Since I765 processing time has already passed normal, we filled an enquiry through Senator. USCIS responded to the inquiry that I539 is pending due to security checks.
    Any idea what exactly it means and have some one come across this scenario and how long it can take to resolve this.

    Thanks,
