What is the M2 Visa?
The M2 Visa is a nonimmigrant permit that allows the dependent spouse and eligible children of M-1 Visa holders to enter the U.S.
On M2 Visa, eligible children can study in elementary or secondary school. Adults, such as dependent spouses, can study in a vocational or recreational school. However, they cannot seek admission to a U.S. university nor accept any form of employment.
It must be noted that only the unmarried children under the age of 21 and the dependent spouses of eligible applicants can get an M2 Visa. If you do not fall in any of these categories, you can still visit your relatives living in the U.S. on a B-2 Visitor permit.
Ask IAS for legal guidance
Obtaining the M2 Visa may be a relatively simple process once the main M1 Visa has been approved. However, you must prove your kinship with the principal Student Visa holder to get your status as an eligible family member.
