Law Text

An O-2 accompanying alien provides essential support to an O-1 artist or athlete.

Such aliens may not accompany O-1 aliens in the fields of science, business, or education.

Although the O-2 alien must obtain his or her own classification, this classification does not entitle him or her to work separate and apart from the O-1 alien to whom he or she provides support.

An O-2 alien must be petitioned for in conjunction with the services of the O-1 alien.
