What is the O3 Dependent Visa?
The O3 Visa is a nonimmigrant permit designed for the dependent spouses and children of O1 Visa holders. It is also suitable for families of O2 Visa holders.
Holding an O3 Visa means that your eligible family members will be allowed to reside in the U.S. as well as engage in full-time study. However, they cannot seek employment. Furthermore, they cannot stay in the U.S. longer than the principal O1 or O2 Visa holder, that is three years. However, they can apply for an adjustment of status to remain in the U.S. longer under a different permit.
