Hello! I am on L-1B visa. I am getting married to my husband in Seychelles this summer. Can my spouse work on L2?

Asked over 1 year ago - San Francisco, CA

I am getting married in Seychelles this summer. Have the following queries:
- Is the Seychelles wedding certificate recognized in US? When my husband takes the certificate to the consulate for L2, will they consider it as a valid document?
- Can my spouse work on L2 visa? How soon?
- What are the other documents that he would need for his visa interview?
- I had my L-1b interview in India. Does my husband has to go to the same location or he can go to the US embassy in Dubai (where he is currently located)?
Thank you so much!!
