I am currently on H4 and a company is filing for my H1. Apart from other normal documents like degree copy etc, they have also asked me to submit my husband's Visa copy, his passport & I-94, H1B approval notice and last 3 pay-stubs. Is it required to submit these spouse documents for H4 to H1 transfer?
This is really really urgent. Please let me know soon.
Many countries will check the status of family members who will be joining you. If you both are working in the US, you will both need a work permit there for the entire period, and of course will both need a residence permit as well. The payslips are proof that your spouse is indeed working for whom his visum says he is.
I have this question too.Visa paper is understandable but why Passport copies?There is one threat I feel i.e.once shilpa's husband submit his visa,passport doc,consultant who is filing shilpa's h1 can trasfer her husband's H1 on his company w/o his notice.
You can't legally stay in the US unless your passport is valid for 6 months after departure. At least on a tourist or short term business visum that's how things work.
My father had a "permanent" business visum giving him unlimited entry and exit into the US for business reasons (but no residence permit, he could not go there and take a job with a US company, he had it because he controlled several US companies as representative of their major shareholders). That visum was linked to his Dutch passport, when the passport expired he needed to get the visum reinstated for the new passport.

No, the passport must be valid for at least six months from the current date when ENTERING the US (and even that is open to CBP's discretion). Changing status while already within the United States is a totally differnt story.
There are some individuals who require a passport to enter the United States, but not to stay there.
