H4 Stamping in India without Biometric in USA

Hi Anil,

Can H4 dependetns directly go to India without applying visa extension here in USA, using H1B approval notice? Just to avoid H4 filing fees and biometric interview here in the states.

FYI, we’re not wondering about H4 EAD renewal and we’re planning to apply for H4 EAD renewal once we come back to USA.

Yes, you can go to India for H4 visa stamping without filing H4 extension in USA.

As a matter of fact, everyone has to go through Biometric in India as well. The fingerprinting process is what is biometric.

Yes… I’m aware of Biometric interview in India. But do not want to do two times.
