Schedule H4 Visa fingerprinting before marriage


I am getting married in Jan,17 and I’ve to get my H1B stamped after extension as well. There are couple of questions regarding the H4 visa.

  1. Is it advisable to apply for both H1B and H4 stamping together or getting H1B stamped first before H4 stamping for my wife?

  2. In case we’re applying together, can the fingerprinting date be taken before the marriage and interview date afterwards?


  1. Personally, I prefer to get them done together.

  2. Should be ok to do that
