O-2 Visa Category and Evidentiary Requirements
O-1 visas provide opportunities for individuals with extraordinary abilities to come to the US. These individuals may not be alone and require assistance from trainers, support staff, or assistants.
O-2 Visa Category
An O-2 nonimmigrant visa is for individuals who accompany the artists or the athletes with an O-1 visa.
The holder of an O-2 visa cannot work independently or change the employer from the O-1 beneficiary they are supporting.
The employer should file Form I-129 (Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker) along with the documents mentioned in the form instruction at least 45 days prior to the date of employment to avoid any delays. After the USCIS approves the petition, the applicant can apply for a visa at a US embassy.
Application Process of an O-2 visa
I wanted to work for more than one employer on an O-2 visa. Can I do that?
Yes, the beneficiaries under an O-2 visa are allowed to work for more than one employer. In such a case, each employer has to file individual petitions for the beneficiary.
