M2 (Dependent of Student) Visa Stamping Documents

M2 (Dependent of Student) Visa Stamping Documents

You will need the following documents for getting an M-2 visa stamping.

Mandatory Documents

  • Current passport as well as old passports 

  • One photograph (Only for a dropbox appointment)

  • Confirmation page of online submitted Form DS-160 with CEAC bar code. 

  • Visa fees
    Fees to be paid in advance before taking an appointment. 

  • Original interview appointment letter and one copy.

  • Both pages of the bar-coded, original SEVIS generated Form I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status) obtained from a U.S. college, school, or university and signed by you and a school official.

    All students, as well as their spouse and dependent children (everyone that is applying for the U.S. visa), must be registered in SEVIS. Your school is responsible for entering your information for the Form I-20 into SEVIS.

    In addition to the original, one copy of Form I-20 is also required.

    Your I-20 does not need to be sealed in an envelope. However, you have to make sure that you carry the I-20 when you travel, as you have to show it to the immigration officer at the port of entry in order to be admitted into the U.S.

    When you get the visa, there will be nothing stamped on your I-20. When you enter the U.S, the immigration officer at the port of entry will stamp on the I-20 in the allotted space.

  • Original proof of payment with the SEVIS Fee Receipt I-901 and one copy, if applicable.
