L2 Visa Interview Q&A Help


My visa interview is on July 27th for L2 Visa at Hyderabad. I am currently working and have a baby of 15 months old. My husband left to U.S. last year and we (daughter and myself) are planning to go by November or December. Travel date is not yet decided.

Could any of you share your experiences about the L2 visa interview and also help me answering in a better way for the following questions

1)Why do you need a visa to U.S.

2)Why did you not attend the visa interview with your husband

3)Are you planning to quit your job

4)Are you planning to work in USA/What are you planning to do in the US

Hi Shiny,

Congrats on getting the L1 to your husband.

  1. You should always tell the truth while you are attending visa interviews. That said, you should tell that your husband is currently working with in and that you would like to join him with your daughter.

  2. You can give a reason such as you did not want to travel with your new born baby back then. Now you would like join your husband.

  3. Yes if you are planning to quit before joining. I would say yes to make it clear that your intention is only to join your husband and not working.

  4. No because you would like to concentrate on taking care of your baby for now to be on safer side.

Good Luck with the interview!

Thanks and Regards

2)Are you planning to quit your job

  1. Are you planning to work in USA/What are you planning to do in the US
