O – 2 Essential Support Personnel of O-1 Visa Holders


Individuals who will accompany an O-1, artist or athlete, to assist in a specific event or performance:



  • For an O-1A, the O-2’s assistance must be an “integral part” of the O-1A’s activity; and
  • For an O-1B, the O-2’s assistance must be “essential” to the completion of the O-1B’s production. The O-2 worker has critical skills and experience with the O-1 that cannot be readily performed by a U.S. worker and which are essential to the successful performance of the O-1.


The initial period of stay is up to 3 years with possibility of extension which will be determined by USCIS in order to accomplish the initial event or activity in increments of up to 1 year.
