I have some clarifications when applying H4-extn for my dependents (India) to get h4-stamping in India. Recently I have applied h1 extension and got the future visa valid start date. I have filled DS-160 forms, and used my future date H1- petition number ( recently H1-extn approved by USCIS ) which is valid from 05/21/2021 to 05/20/2024. Below are the current and future visa date details: Current petition: LINXXXXXX23 Valid Date : 09/23/2019 to 05/20/2021 I-94 Date : 09/23/2019 to 05/30/2021 New approved petition which recently approved in H1-Extension : LINXXXXXX55 Valid Date : 05/21/2021 to 05/20/2024 I-94 Date : 05/21/2021 to 05/30/2024 Questions: My employer ask to use the future petition in DS-160 (valid from 05/21/2021) and ask to submit both current and future petition I-797 for Visa Stamping. 1) Which petition number I need to use to send my H4 -dependents for Visa stamping ( current (or) future date petition) ? 2) Until which date my dependents will get Visa. 3 If visa get approved, can they travel before 05/21/2021 by showing both petitions in the port of entry to enter USA (or) they need to travel after 05/21/2021 only? Kindly provide me the answers.
