Question
Hi there,
Appreciate this forum. I am on H1B Visa that will expire in Sep 2009. However I will be working for an European subsidiary  for the next 2 years. I am applying for the respective country visa:\
Questions:
Can I still re-enter US anytime until Sep 2009
Can I still use my H1 to get a H4 for my wife from the US Consulate in that European country?

Thanks much
Regards
Shankar

Answer
Shankar,
You can enter on H-1 only if your employer has an H-1B job offer for you in the US. Your spouse can get an H-4 visa and enter the US if her spouse is employed in the US as a H-1B employee.

Sincerely,
