Urbandale, IA asked in Immigration Law for Iowa

Q: Can my child (minor) on H4 travel to India and back to US with her aunt?

I am on H1B in the US. My wife came to the US on H4 and recently changed status to H1B. We are seeking advice if there is any risk in having our minor daughter on H4 (visa stamped till Nov 2019) travel outside the country and back with her aunt (my sister who is a green card holder) in June for a period of 2 months.

What documents do we need to provide for her travel without parents? Also, could there be any immigration risk at port of entry during return?

A: There should be no issue, as long as the child has a valid and unexpired H4 visa. You should show that your daughter has your permission to travel with her aunt.
