Mckinney, TX asked in Immigration Law for Texas

Q: Reenter US with F2 visa

I have a valid F2 visa until 2020, with my wife being the sponsor.

My wife was F1, then OPT, and then transferred to another school for another F1, but same SEVIS number.

I would like to know if I can reenter US with the same valid F2 visa, or do I need to get a new visa, since both my wife and I are with a different school now.

A: What is your question?

Assuming your wife is now in H-1B status, you can apply for H-4 status as her dependent.

A: Your status is the same. Your visas should indicate information regarding the initial school, so carry with you any evidence of the lawful change of institutions.
