Hi, My wife is working for Government of India in chhattisgarh.Presently I am holding a L1 visa and planning to apply L2 dependent visa for her.She may apply for long leave or resign from her employment if she gets visa.My query is1, Is there any restriction for government employees applying for a dependent visa2.Does she need to produce a Non Objection certificate(NOC) from her employer during visa interview?Your guidance in this regard is highly appreciated.Thanking you in anticipation.

The NOC is not needed for visa interview, US consulate has no interest in these matters; but this maybe asked when she is ready to leave country - the India port of immigration (utpravaas jaanch) might need to see the document.

thanks a ton!!!
So should I submit my form ds 160 and get an date for interview?
