Dependents and Family Members

You must notify the International Office if you plan to have any of your dependents accompany you in F-2 or J-2 status and provide biographical information (e.g. full name, address, country of birth, etc.) and immigration information (e.g. passport information, visa information, etc.) for each one. For traveling and re-entering the U.S., F-2 and J-2 dependents need all the same documents as the F-1 and J-1 student. Contact the International Student Advisor for more information. You can also request a letter for your dependents who are travelling to KU (Letter Request Form PDF).
