F-2 or J-2 spouses and minor children who are not accompanied by the F-1 or J-1 student and visiting scholars must have:
- Valid passport
- Valid U.S. visa stamp (except for Canadian Citizens)
(If you need a new visa stamp click here)
- Valid separate Form I-20 or DS-2019
- Evidence of financial funding
If the dependents have never been given an I-20 or DS-2019, then you need to see an ISS adviser. Form DS-2019 for the J-2 dependents can be obtained from the ISS office or your program sponsor.
