H1B - H 4 Query

Hi. Currently my h1B visa application is in process. (2017). And I’m also getting married to a guy who’s on h1b living in United States of America.I have a query regarding h1 & h4 applications

  1. If my h1 is not picked in lottery, would that effect my h4 application later when I go for h4 stamping ?
  2. If my the result of my h1 is still pending, can I get my stamping done on h4 first & later change to h1 if picked ?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

  1. No impact

  2. Yes, you can get H-4 visa stamped and enter US on H-4. Once H-1 has been approved, you can either apply for COS from H-4 to H-1, or enter US on stamped H-1 visa.
