Query Regarding H4 Ds-160 form


I am in US with H1B visa and  working for company A. My wife is also working for company A in India.

I am filling H4 for my wife. I have doubt for one question in DS-160 form under Previous US travel for  H4 visa.

Question is :Has anyone ever filed an immigrant petition on your behalf with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services?

Company B have filled H1B visa for my wife on 1st April 2014 and awaiting for updates.

Could you please let me know, what should we write for above question in Ds-160 form ( Is it Yes or No).

I asked in company B for same and they even not sure about what to answer for above question.


Appriciate your help in this matter. Its a bit urgent.





The answer is ‘no’ to the question. H-1B is not an immigrant petition, it is non-immigrant class. The question is referring to green card petitions filed for you by someone else.

All the best
