Immigration Issues/Spouse's visa

Question
Hey there, I am on H1b. And my spouse went to apply for a H4 visa last week. However, he was issued a B1/B2 visa instead. Do you see a problem when he enters US?

Answer
Lana,
I have never heard this before.  There could be an issue if he comes on B1/B2 and then changes quickly to H4.  The service could view this as a fraudulent intent to circumvent the immigration process.  I would suggest that he go to the consulate again to get the correct visa.
Good Luck
