Hi,My wife came to the US in February 2011 on B1/B2 visa. She then moved to F1 status from April 2011 to 2016. We then got married in Dec, 2016. And then she got her L2 in 2017. She appeared before the consulate today to get her L1 visa stamped. However she was given a 221g mentioning that she needs to submit the "Timeline and proof of status of student from 2011 to 2016."Is it a normal request for an L-2 visa. Is there anything to worry about? What documents need to be submitted here?
