H 4 VISA
Global Allianz Immigration consultants will prepare and file all the required forms and documents for H 4 visa.
An H-4 visa is a visa issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to immediate family members (spouse and children under 21 years of age) of the H-1B visa holders.
These visas are usually issued at the local US consulate office abroad. However, if the person is already in US, he or she can obtain H-4 visa by filing Form I-539 for change of status. The H-4 Dependent Visa allows the dependent spouse and children of any principal H-class visa holder’s entry to the United States and free travel in and out of the country.
The H-4 visa holder is dependent upon the principal H visa holder and will lose their status when the H visa holder loses their status, usually at the end of a period of employment.
