I received my H1B extension approval today with Starting Validity Date: 07/22/2022. My current H1 stamping expires 1 day prior - 07/21/2022
I have a query
- My dependents ( Wife and Son ) didn’t travel outside USA during last three years and their last stamping expired on 03/06/2019.
- For both, previous H4s were approved until 07/21/2022 and their I94 validity date is until 10 days after - 07/31/2022 but passports are not stamped.
- We applied H4 extension along with my Premium H1B last week, but H4 approvals may not come for next 6 months.
In this scenario, if we travel to India to get our Visa stamped before July ( let’s say April 2022) can we get their Visa stamped without their new H4 approval ?
What would the validity for their H4 Visa ?
Little more background : We applied H4 EAD in Sep and that may come by March and next EAD was applied last week so the earlier EAD will expire before the next one comes.
