  • You need an employer who is sponsoring you for a work visa. You can’t work on an F2 visa.

    You need an employer willing to sponsor you for a E3 visa. You don’t need to leave the US in order to work, but the first time you leave you will need to get the new visa entered into your passport before coming back.

    is it I-765 form to have a work…

  • F2 is dependent of a foreign student (F1), and you are strictly prohibited from working – or even looking for work.

    If you qualify for E3, go home, apply, and if accepted, then you get a new visa. But on a dependent visa, forget it.

  • No, she can’t wait here. You just can’t wait in the US for a green card. And tourist visas can not turn in to anything. They expire, and you leave. The text that you quoted does not apply to you. Your priority date isn’t current, so you can’t file for adjustment of status. She also doesn’t have a visa that will allow her to stay the entire time. That applies to people who have a visa like an H1B that is good for years, and is a dual intent visa, so you are not committing fraud to maintain the H1B when you have intent to immigrate. You can’t get a new tourist visa or anything like that when you are waiting for a green card, because that would be fraud. When you get a tourist visa, you swear that you have no intent to immigrate. If you are applying for a green card, making the statement that you have no intent to immigrate is fraud. There really is no way around this. You can’t wait in the US for your green card.

  • you can try to file the I-765 form, but I’m afraid it won’t be approved on an F2 visa. on the other hand, depending on the type of work he might be able to sponsor you himself, if he’s willing to do the paperwork and wait a bit. doesn’t sound much like he wants to do that though, but you have to have a sponsor for an employment based visa.

    it’s possible to adjust status while in the US on a tourist visa. however, the F2 immigrant petition currently takes 3 years before it becomes valid for use. no one can stay in the US in status for 3 years on a tourist visa.

  • you may not take up paid employment while in the U.S. on F-2 visa

    you would have to return to your home country and apply for a different visa
