An L-2 visa allows the spouse and the unmarried minor children of an L-1 visa holder to live and study in the United States while the principal L visa holder works and supports them. It is a great option for families that wish to stay together, even after an intercompany transfer or other business opportunity on American soil.
But how does one apply for an L-2 visa? Let’s take a closer look at the process of securing an L-2 visa for your family:
- Submit a complete copy of the principal L visa holder’s application, including copies of all associated documents.
- Submit a copy of your spouse or parent’s employment verification letter.
- Submit your processing fee.
- Submit application Form DS-160, a non-immigration visa application.
- Submit proof of your status as a dependent by including a valid marriage certificate or proof of marriage (or, if you are the child of the L visa holder, a birth certificate).
- Submit a recent, passport-style headshot.
- Submit a copy of your valid passport.
