Usa L2 Dependent Visa

How to get US L2 Dependent Visa?

The dependents of U.S. L1 visa holders can accompany them to the U.S. by applying for USA L2 Visa. USA L2 dependent applies to the spouses and unmarried minor children of the L1 visa holders.

As a dependent, L2 visa carries the same duration as that of L1 visa. L1A visa can be up to 7 years while L1B visa can be up to 5 years. L2 visa holders can travel in and out of the U.S. within this duration period.

Visa features

  • You are allowed to stay in the U.S. for the entire duration of the L1 visa
  • You are allowed to work in the U.S.
  • Work permit - EAD

    A peculiar merit of L2 dependent over other dependent visa is that the spouse is allowed to work in the U.S. by obtaining Employment Authorization Documents (EAD). EAD is filed with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Once your EAD gets approved, and you get EAD card, you should then go to the Social Security Office to obtain your Social Security Number (SSN). With EAD, L2 holders can do any legal jobs or business in the U.S. this usually lasts for a pa period of two years at a time and is renewable as far as the L1 visa is still valid.

  • You can also take admission for full-time study in any university in the U.S.
  • You can travel in and out of U.S. within the validation period

  • Original marriage certificate (including photographs of your marriage) it is a proof of relationship
