  • Question regarding H4 stamping of my infant daughter

    I am on H1B visa and currently in the US, and my wife and 8 months old daughter are in India. Me and my wife have a valid stamped visa till Jan 2021 but in between, I had an amendment from the same employer, and based on the approved amendment petition my daughter got a stamped visa only till May 2020. So at this point, my wife has a valid visa stamped on passport till Jan 2021 but my daughter doesn't.

    My question is: 'Can my daughter alone just apply for a new H4 visa stamping based on my recent extended (renewed) petition (I797)' or my wife and daughter both will have to apply together based on my new petition?

    Yes your daughter seems to fit into an exception to the proclamation and can individually apply for H-4 visa at this time with the US consulate in her home country if the US consulates are open.
