My H1B visa stamp is from my old employer. Can my wife apply for an H-4 visa stamp if she provides the consulate with my new employer’s documents?


The H-4 visa application does not require that the H1B spouse have an up-to-date H1B visa “stamp.” The H-4 application simply requires showing proof of the marriage and proof of the spouse’s valid H1B status. (19.Oct.2015)
