H4 visa transfer along with H1B transfer


My spouse is thinking of moving to a new employer on H1B (transfer). However, my current H4 renewal application is still in process (waiting on biometric appointment). If the H1B transfer is filed by his new employer, do we need to apply for H4 again? Or can the pending H4 application be continued? Please note that my I-94 is about to expire in a few days.

Please help.


It’s better to do your h4 also since the prev one is still pending, and see if all can be submitted before your current h4 expiry. i heard some cases that when h1 moves to new company, the old employer may revoke their h1 and the pending h4 based on that may get rejected. this may or may not happen. to be safer do h4 also.
