asked May 15 in H1B: H4 Visas,Stamping by aks5663815 (150 points)
My wife came to US on H4 visa stamped via dropbox in Jan-2016 which she received till Dec-2017. Then she had to get F1 stamped for college so her H4 was cancelled and F1 was issued effective from Dec-2016 to Dec-2021. Now we are in India after her college completed. I got my I140 approval and H1B approval beyond 6 years. I checked I am eligible for dropbox. Do I need to check if my wife is eligible too?  If yes, I logged in via her account and there it asks do you have previous H4 visa? Should we answer Yes since she did have H4 visa previously valid till Dec-2017 but cancelled due to F1 visa. If I choose Yes then she is eligible for dropbox if I choose No then she is not eligible for dropbox. Can I directly submit her's for dropbox too since I am eligible?

Your wife is eligible as he had an H4 visa expired in the last 12 months, please see below.

  • If I am applying for any other class of visa, my prior visa in the same class is still valid or expired within the last 12 months.

I called us travel docs and they said since she is on f1 she will not be eligible for dropbox to apply for h4. also her h4 was cancelled effective Dec-2016 when f1 was issued so does it still count as expired within 12 months since expiry date was Dec-2017 as on the visa with cancelled without prejudiced stamp?
