H4 visa stamping using Emergency Appointment - H1B stamped?

Hello Together,

Below is my case details:

  1. Got H1B stamped on March 12th 2020 ( before president proclamation on travel ban) and its valid till September 2022
  2. But didn’t travel due to travel ban and still in India


  1. Can i raise H4 dependent visa for my spouse and kids?
  2. Or do i need to raise H4 visa only as Emergency appointment ?
  3. Is my case has any chance of EA approval ?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Yes
  2. Yes, you need to do it as EA
  3. It is likely. But, there are many delays with getting EA in recent times. Many are waiting. Check below
