Can you take H4 visa interview before Oct 1 ?


I am presently on F1 visa and from Oct 1st will be on H1B visa. I want to bring my wife on H4 dependent visa.

Can she take visa interview prior to Oct 1 (before my H1B starts) or she needs to wait till OCT 1st for interview?

Thanks in advance,

Chances of approval are 50-50 if she goes now with potential for an RFE. I suggest waiting until you start and generate 1 to 2 pay stubs. This is because H-1B projects sometimes get delayed to start and consulates abroad watch the process with caution.

All the best
