O-3 Visa Details
An O-3 visa may be obtained by an O1 or O2 visa holder’s spouse and minor children. An O-3 visa holder may remain in the U.S. as long as the primary O1 or O2 visa holder remains in legal status. An O3 visa holder may change his or her status in the US by applying to USCIS.
An O3 visa holder may not accept employment. He or she must apply for and obtain a work visa.
An O3 visa holder may engage in full or part time study while residing in the U.S.
For whom is a O3 Visa appropriate?
Spouse and children of O visa holders who wish to visit or accompany the O visa holder to the United States.
What are the requirements for obtaining an O3 Visa?
The spouse and unmarried minor children of the O1 or O2 alien beneficiary are entitled to O3 nonimmigrant classification, subject to the same period of admission and limitations as the principal O-1 or O-2 beneficiary, on the condition that they are accompanying or following to join the foreign national beneficiary in the United States. Neither the spouse nor a child of the alien beneficiary may accept employment unless he or she has been granted employment authorization by USCIS.
