Eligible L-2 visa recipients are the spouses and unmarried children (under age 21) of L-1 visa holders.
The application process begins with filling out the DS-160 form. A visa interview may be required as well. At the interview, the applicant is required to bring a passport and a passport-style photograph. Applicants may also need to bring proof of their relationship with the L-1 visa holder, such as a wedding album and marriage certificates.
About 15 days to one month.
L-2 visa holders may reside and attend school in the U.S. With proper authorization, spouses may be able to work as well. They can take short trips to and from the U.S. And they can apply for a green card, which may ultimately lead to U.S. citizenship.
