Immigration Issues/H4 Document : Employer Letter Describing Relationship With Principal Applicant



I came across this particular requirement in VFS website for a H4 applicant:

'letter from employer that describes the relationship with the Principal Applicant and the purpose of travel'

I would really appreciate it if there is a sample of the same or if you could provide an inkling as to what exactly it is (as far as I know, the employer can provide an employment verification letter, but not stating that the spouse is applying for a dependent visa and so on).

Thank you for your time and help!


I am not sure what this type of document is. You are right the employer's letter generally does not mention relationships of its employees. I would suggest that you ignore this. You should rely on the official USCIS website requirements (even here there are some errors) rather than ponder on requirements posted by other organizations.
