The diverse categories of US Dependent Visas
The dependent visas are for spouses and dependent children of students or work visa holders.
Student dependents (F2):
Student visa holders need to get the dependent I-20 from the University/College for each of their dependents to be eligible to file the visa application.
They need to show the living expenses to cover their living cost as they do not have any work rights on this dependents visa.
Work Dependents (H4 and L2):
Based on the work visa category be it a H1B or L1 visa, the dependents can file for the dependent visa to be with their spouses in US.
Most important is to book the appointment for giving the bio-metrics (finger scan) and another appointment for giving the interview.
Process time: Passport to be collected from the VAC centre within 14 days after the visa is issued or Home delivery through Blue Dart can be requested.
