Recording Available, November 08, 2018 Community Conference Call with Attorney Rajiv S. Khanna

Not open for further replies.
Hello Rajiv,

I am on H1B currently in the USA.

Petition and visa have expired on November 6th 2018.
Employer has already filed the extension on November 1st and I am waiting for the receipt number.

My spouse and kid are in India. I am planning to get them to the USA on dependent visa (H4) as soon as possible.
The dependent visa has NOT been applied yet.

1. Can I apply H4 visa for my family while my H1B extension is in progress.
2. If yes, what will be validity on their visa? and hopefully they can travel immediately.
3. If no, how can I get them here as early as possible?
A) One option is to get my H1B processing converted to premium and then apply for them after I get my approval.
B) Other option would be to get them on tourist visa and then apply for H4 once my extension is approved.
Are these feasible options?

Thank you very much in advance for reading this and helping me out.
