H4 Visa Interview Questions

In my previous forum thread I had listed some tips on documentation and preliminary paperwork required for the application of an H4 visa.In this forum I will discuss some of the commonly asked questions during the H4 Visa interview.  The visa interview process for all the visas can be divided into two segments: One, the questions that are asked for any US visa interview and two, the questions that are unique for the H4 visa. 
 
Questions regarding general information like name, address, academic background, medical reports, previous work experience and current occupation are likely to be asked during any visa interview.
For the H4 visa the interviewer’s goal is simple: to ensure that the spouse will accompany a legally employed person in the United States and to ascertain if the visa applicant will not try to seek employment in the United States.  All the interview questions will primarily focus on these two issues. Remember that they do not want you to come and settle here.  They also do not want you to come and work illegally here.  Hence you must expect questions related to your marriage, your work experience, your spouse’s work experience, his/her salary slips and bank information, home address, information about his employer, etc. and what you intend to do in the United States.

A good interview strategy can make the process fast and simple. It is best to be brief and to-the point. You must give answers to questions that are asked and not 'beat around the bush!'

List of questions asked during my interview

I am listing the questions that were asked during my visa interview. I did some research and more than often the pattern for the interview for the H4 visa is similar.

  • What is your name?
  • Where do you live ? (A little tweet about my hometown)
  • What do you do for a living?
  • Can you show me your salary slips?
  • What are your educational qualifications?
  • Are you studying?
  • When did you get married? (A quick glance at my ‘chooda’ or customary marriage bangles)
  • Can you show me your marriage certificate?
  • Do you have any pictures of the marriage ceremony? (Of course I do!)
  • What is your spouse’s highest degree? (Now it is all about him..:D)
  • Can you show me a copy of his degree?
  • Which company does your spouse work for?
  • Who is sponsoring your husbands H1?
  • Where is his employer located?
  • What is the role of your husband in the US Company?
  • How long has your husband been in the US ?
  • Can you show me his passport? (He wants to verify the US stamping)
  • How long has your spouse been working for the sponsoring company?
  • Can you show me copies of his payslips? (He wants to know how much he is earning or what is the annual income)
  • Can you please show me your tax returns, bank statements, play slips, etc.?
  • Can you show me your passport?
  • Can you show me his I 797 ?
  • Do you intend to work in the United States (The focus is back on me.  Of course the answer is a big fat NOOO!)
  • How long do you intend to stay in the US ?
  • Do you intend to come back to India?
  • Do you have a copy of your itinerary?
  • Congratulations! you are all set! You will receive the stamped passport within a week to ten days.

After talking to a few friends on H4 visa I realized that the line of quesitoning was similar for all of them.  Go to more H4 visa interview questions to read about experiences of other members of the community.

Prutha : I am confused

Hi,It’s a very elaborative information you have given us in this area….I have few questions…can you please anwer them…it will be a gr8 help for me…
For H4 visa,1) If you dont answer or answer incorrectly any question asked..how much tat can be risky?
2) If you forget to bring your own experience certificates (not ur husband’s), then if they ask for the same in interview, then wt would happen?

Hi Prutha,

1) If you dont answer or answer incorrectly any question asked..how much tat can be risky?
Re: It is better to be honest in the interview process. Try to prepare before the interview. The visa can be denied/canceled if the information you provide is found to be incorrect or not verifiable.

2) If you forget to bring your own experience certificates (not ur husband’s), then if they ask for the same in interview, then wt would happen?

 
Re: An inability to produce a document asked by the interviewer does not reflect well. If the document is very important you may be denied the visa. In other cases you may be given a pink slip to go back to the consulate with the document at a later point of time.
 

Please note that the interview is a very subjective process. The interviewer is simply trying to assess if it is safe to grant you the visa or not. Please be as accurate as possible in giving information and carry all the documents with you.

Good Luck!

Prutha,

Prutha,

The Admin has worked really hard to gather all these questions and its definitely not a comprehensive list. The answers to all these questions depend on individual situations. So my suggestion is that you try to answer those yourself. This is not your F1 visa where definite answers might help you. Questions vary vastly and hence no definite answer can be formulated.

Akki:H4 Visa Questions

Hi there,
i gone through your blogs which are very helpful..Thanks a lots for such information.
i want to ask you few questions.
i am engaged and my fiancee is in usa on h1b visa since dec 2005 and we are getting married in dec 2009. as i will be a husband and i am working in india. so i just want to know what are questions visa officer will ask me in H4 interview
kindly suggest me best as i am currently working and if i will go in US i wont have work visa …….
 

Reply by Administrator

Hi Akki,
Thank you for the good words.
Congratulations!
So the probable line of questioning would be pretty much the same as listed in this post above. However, the visa officer will certainly be interested to know YOUR INTENT of working in the U.S. after you get here, especially since you are currently employed. Be sure to answer that you do not intend to work in the US and would simply like to accompany your spouse on the dependent visa (H4).
Please let me know if you have any other specific question. You can read about the paperwork requirements for the H4 visa in the post titled ‘Documents needed for the H4 Visa’.
Thank you,

Rejection of H4 visa

IANAL
Hi Akki,
Currently, the H1 B visa quota has not been filled. Immigration is not as hard as it used to be.
However, in your case, the interviewer’s goal is simple:
1. to ensure that you will accompany a legally employed person in the United States and,
2. to ascertain if you will not try to seek employment in the United States.
Remember that they do not want you to settle in the U.S.here. They also do not want you to come and work illegally here.
Hence you must expect questions related to your marriage, your work experience, your spouse’s work experience, his/her salary slips and bank information, home address, information about his employer, etc and your own work background. You can also find more information on my post titled “Can my h4 visa be denied” Link: http://blog.dslamba.net/2009/04/08/can-my-h4-visa-be-denied/
Like I said before, you have to convince them that you do not have an intention to seek employment in the U.S.
Complete all the paperwork and the fee requirements and hopefully you should get the visa. If you find time, let us know how it goes. Good Luck!

Hi Tanvi,
To the best of my knowledge there should not be a problem since the H1 approval notice has been received. Much depends on what the officer is looking for. I would like to add that during my interview, my husband’s passport was asked for since he had traveled on multiple visas to the U.S. I think you should be fine.
Good Luck!

H4 for husband

Hi,
we are in process of applying H4 for myself soon. My wife works on H1B in the US. All are documentation is in place and we have got married recently. What do think the chances are for the approval of the visa. I have completed my masters from the UK. And I also do know that I cannot work in the US. 
 
Your advice will be appreciated. and could please tell me the FAQ's.
Thank you,

Hey Mazhar & Mahez,
Congratulations!
Welcome to the H4 visa forum dedicated for current and future H4 visa holders. I have not heard of any discrimination in grant of this visa based on sex. That said you obviously have to make a very very strong case that you just intend to accompany your wife on the dependent visa and not work.
There are no statistics to prove this but usually women apply for H4 visas and so you may face more scrutiny during the H4 visa. If you can successfully make a case that you have no intention to work I think you should be fine. Please expect questions about your previous work experience, education, and future plans in the U.S.
I have posted a list of questions on the above forum. Please browse that and feel free to ask questions.
I am not a lawyer but I would be happy to share my experiences with you.
Thank you,

Thanks Ridhima

Thank you very much for your response. We have a scheduled interview on the 4th Jan 2011. Going my the responses in the forum by the other applicants, its surely a little complicated in obtaining the visa. Well lets hope for the best result. Will assist the forum with my experience at the consulate. Thank You

Good luck Alwaysmazhar!

 

Thanks for your response Mazhar.
Please do not be discouraged. It is challenging but not entirely impossible for men to get H4 visas.
I wish you good luck. Be positive and make a strong case. Please do tell us how the H4 visa interview goes. We all wish you lots of luck!

Hello Ridhima,   Guess what.

Hello Ridhima,
 
Guess what. Yes our application has been accepted by the US Consulate and we have finally got the H4 Visa and now awaiting for the passport to be delivered. As advised the positiveness did do the trick and I didnt feel it was very challenging for us to get the visa.
It was just a matter of a minutes 2 questions asked and that was it. 
We are very thankful that this forum did help us to get our H4 visa for me. 
Thank you very much.

Hi, I'm working in USA

Hi,
I'm working in USA through my H1B, my wife and my son going for H4 dependent visa interview next month.
In my the DS-160, I mentioned all the original and real informatoins. There I mentioned as my wife is working. Will that cause any issue on her H4 dependent visa. Is because she's working in India, will it make any cause on getting her dependent visa. Will the interview ask anything related to that job?
I'm totally confused and feard about this, plese share some information about that.
 

Hello Murali,   IANAL   I do

Hello Murali,
 
IANAL
 
I do not think it should be a problem at all. Yes she may be asked about her current job and yes it is ok if you gave her current status as working...:))
 
The key issue is that dependent visa holders (H4) are not allowed to work in the U.S. When asked about her intentions to work in the U.S. she should clearly state that she would not work on the H4 visa and that she just wants to accompany her husband (you) in the U.S.
 
It does not matter what a person applying for the H4 visa is doing prior to coming to the U.S. All that matters is that he would not seek employment on the H4 visa. Tell her to be confident and she will be ok!
 
If it makes you feel better ask her to carry an employment certificate if she is planning to quit her job before the H4 visa interview.
 
Please do share the outcome of your wife and child's H4 visa interview for the benefit of others. Let me know if you have any other questions.
 
Good luck!

Hi,Thank you all for valuable comments. My wife and Son got the H4 dependent visa. In the embassy they didn't ask anything about her employment. I was very much worried because I have mentioned in the DS160 as she's working in IBM. So, she also carried lots of document to support her job in IBM.Questions from Embassy:1. Is your husband Permanent or Temporary employee.2. How much his salary in USA.3. Show the Visa of your husband.That's all from the interviewer.All the best for all. God's grace everything should happen well for all.

Thank you for these useful tips. I am confused if I should get my last name changed after marriage or not. Right now my passport has my maiden name. Please help. Tell me what I should do to get the visa quickly.

Hello Shey,  This is a

Hello Shey, 

This is a personal choice.

I did not get my name changed so speed up the process. I did not want to wait for my name change to get through, and then apply separately for the H4 visa.

I retained my paternal name and kept that name on all the evidence they needed-passport, marriage certificate, driver's license, etc. Even my H4 visa was issued for my paternal name only.

Hi my husband is in USA

Hi my husband is in USA working on H1 visa.. and am planning to accompany him on H4 visa.Currently am working and i am planning to take leave for 5 months LOP from office for time being and then may think of extending till the date my husband has H1 visa.DO i need leave letter from my company and if i have said my company that am staying only 5 months they give NOC only for those many days.Will my visa also be approved only till that date i have NOC from my company or my Visa expires only when my husband visa expires? and for extended stay do i need to apply for visa again?

Hey,The duration of the H4

Hey,The duration of the H4 visa is usually linked with the H1 visa. How you strategize to manage your current job is not likely to affect your visa interview unless you show some intention to work on the H4 visa. That is a total no.Read about Anju's recent experience here. Feel free to ask other questions and please do mention your name..:))Thanks,Ridhima [quote=Anonymous]Hi my husband is in USA working on H1 visa.. and am planning to accompany him on H4 visa.Currently am working and i am planning to take leave for 5 months LOP from office for time being and then may think of extending till the date my husband has H1 visa.DO i need leave letter from my company and if i have said my company that am staying only 5 months they give NOC only for those many days.Will my visa also be approved only till that date i have NOC from my company or my Visa expires only when my husband visa expires? and for extended stay do i need to apply for visa again?[/quote]   

hi i am in the H1b visa right

hi i am in the H1b visa right now and I recently got married last february 2011. Now my husband is trying to schedule an interview under the h4 category, our problem is that last october 2010 he tried to get in the united stated to visit me under a tourist visa and he was denied for purpose of immigration intent. will that affect his h4 visa interview now? will it be hard for him to get an h4 visa because he was denied as tourist before??thanks a lot for any reply..really appreciate!!!

Hello,   Usually if a person

Hello,
 

  • Usually if a person applies in the same visa category within a short period of time, there are chances of multiple denials.
  • However, your husband is applying for a totally different visa so he should be fine.
  • You may also want to consider waiting for some more time before you apply-its just been 6 months since he last applied (though an entirely different visa). 

You will just have to take a chance. Ask your husband to present a compelling story that he wants to accompany you in the U.S. and fully understands what the H4 visa entails (no job, no SSN, etc). Ask him to carry full paperwork. 
 
It would be great if you can post the outcome of his interview with us. You can also read this forum: H4 visa for husbands.
 
I hope your husband can join you quickly here!
Good luck,
Ridhima

Hey, I think that this is a

Hey,

I think that this is a different visa category so he should definitely give it a try. Interviews are a subjective process and all your husband has to do is present a great case of why he wants to be with you in the U.S.

Could you please descirbe his previous interview? Exactly what questions were asked? My cousin also applied for a tourist visa and he was denied on grounds of 'not enough ties with country of origin'. We thought it was ridiculous but the officer asked him to apply only after 1 year or if something substantially changed in his status.

Its really  upto you-give it a try now or wait for a few months more. Since it is an entirely different visa category, I'd say 'go for it!'..

You can leave a name here. Don't be shy..makes it easier to connect with other members of the community..

the interview last october

the interview last october was denied on the grounds of ' purpose of immigration intent' actually last october  he just said that he was just planning to visit her aunt with her mom.. he was asked if he got a wife in his country that will be left of course he said no..I think they are also looking for ties in the country of origin....yeah i think we should give it a try but I was thinking that the denial last year would be a an issue in his coming interview..thats what im worrying..i don't want it to be a cause of denial for h4.

and may I also asked is it ok to say that he is planning to study here since he cant work  on h4?that is actually our plan but out target is next year.

thanks a lot for your reply..it really helps..

Hello Alexia, I think you

Hello Alexia,

I think you guys should definitely try. Ask him to show your H1 papers, marriage certificate, and other related documents. He should present a strong case that he got married in Feb and now wants to live with his wife. I do not think that there should be a problem. If you apply right away, there is enough evidence to prove that you guys just got married and it makes sense to move together asap. If you apply after a few months, you can present a case for the delay, for example, finishing current job commitments, etc, etc.

Its absolutely ok to say that he wants to study. As you already know H4 visa holders are not allowed to hold a job but they can study, get a driving license and do pretty much anything else under the sun.

Hope this helps!

Hi Ridhima,   I will be

Hi Ridhima,

 

I will be getting married in Nov, 2011 and my fiance is currently on an H1 . I also have a H1 filed and pending decision. 

 

1) Will it be appropriate if I file for H4 along with my husband in November when he also does his stamping for H1?

2) Since I have a H1 also filed will it pose any problem for my H4 ?

3) What kind of answers should you normally give for :

a) WHat do you intend to do in the US??

b) How long do you intend to stay?

 

I understand you are not an attorney, but just wanted to know the views from experienced people like you. 

BTW, your blogs are absolutely amazing!!! :)

 

Hello Aiswarya, Thank you for

Hello Aiswarya,

Thank you for all the kind remarks! 

1. Yes. I'd say go with your husband. The interview process is far simpler and quicker. I went with my husband and quite frankly, they did not ask me much..:)

2. I do not think it should be a problem as this is a fresh visa.

3. I'd say I want to accompany my spouse in the U.S. I will stay for as long as my visa permits..:) If my husband plans to come back sooner I shall also come back with him...just suggestions; you should always answer all the questions honestly and as per your own unique situation.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Come back in November and share the good news with us..:))

Hey Asihwarya, I am guessing

Hey Asihwarya,

I am guessing that your husband already has his H1 visa so you guys will have to apply for the H4 on your own. You have to fill the DS-160 on your own and pay the HDFC fee as well. Then you will have to go for your H4 visa interview.

Future scenario

When you are here in the U.S. you may have to file for an extension. Your husband's employer may enmploy him for an extended period.

At that time the scenario will change. The common practise is that the companies file for H4 assuming that the principal applicant (H1 visa holder) gives documents related to the H4 visa at the time of filing for his H1 visa extension. That way the dependent visa gets filed at a very nominal cost. 

Right now you have to do everything on your own.

Hope that makes sense or have I confused you more ? :))

Best,

Ridhima

Husbands coming to US on H4- is this common?

Should he tell them in the visa interview that he is quitting his job in India to join me. Of course, he will be looking for a job when he comes here. But can he tell in the visa interview that he is just going to be a stay home husband? or should he say that he will plan to study here at a later point?

PLease advise as he should be having his visa interview sooner this month.

Hello Kirti,

Sorry for the delayed reply. I'd say its fairly common for husbands to apply for the H4 visa. They are comfortable with the prospect of being stay at home husbands and demonstrate knowledge of this fact in their H4 visa interviews. It's upto you how you'd like to present a compelling case so that the H4 visa is not denied. REad this post for more tips and experiences on H4 visa for husbands.

Please keep us posted on how your husband's H4 visa goes.

PLease advise as he should be having his visa interview sooner this month.

Thanks
