The US L-2 Visa is a US non-immigration visa that allows the immediate family relatives (dependents) of a US L-1 worker (sponsor) to join the US counterpart in the US. The immediate family relative of the US L-1 worker consists of his or her spouse and children (under 21 years of age), and the L-2 visa is only available for this category of relatives. Other family relatives, like the parents of the US L-1 worker, are not allowed to enter the US with this category of visa.

The US L-2 will only remain valid for as long as the sponsor’s visa remains valid. Usually, it takes 2 to 4 weeks to complete a US L-2 Visa application, depending on where the application is been made.
