Quick Question - Chennai Consulate
My H1 visa is getting expired in Sep'08 and I will be going to to India during Nov'08 for my wedding, followed by my H1 Visa stamping/H4 for my wife at Chennai Consulate.
My question is, in a normal scenario how long does it takes for the H4 dependent Visa approval/Passport Issue ? Does it differs from each of the consulate office in India ??
Because I heard from some of my friends, that lately the US consulate in India does the back ground checking for the dependent visa(H4) and it
takes minimum of 4 weeks of time to approve the VISA and send it to you.
As I don't have vacation and need to report to the client, I am planning to return to US with in 3 weeks from the date of marriage.
Would it be possible to get mine & my wife's visa before 3.5 weeks of time ??
Lately, if anyone of you have gone through this kind of scenario, please update me on this. I truly appreciate it.
The H4 process should be an easy one and first time, should be no problems. Not sure whether they will do Back ground check on a H4, till end of 2007 all of my friends got it pretty quick, in about 3 to 4 days.
They implemented PIMS after Nov 2007. So your H1 may get slight delay and not sure about new H4 rules.
Consult a qualified immigration lawyer always before you act.
