Should minors (7 & 2 year old) also go to the interview?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiancee will be interviewed this week. Should we also bring the two kids? A 7 year old and a 2 year old to the USEM interview?

Or are they exempted and the mother will just answer for them?

Are they applying for a visa also? Answer this, answer your own question. :blush:

Children must go. When my fiancee interviewed years ago we didn't take her 15 month old son because he was sick. After we'd done most every step there, the US interviewer told us we needed to bring him back. Part of the reason, we were told, was that they want to confirm the same person applying for the visa was the one they saw.

They rescheduled us for 3 weeks later. My fiancee was 7 months pregnant at the time so we thought that was too long and so we talked to another person at the embassy who told us to come back in a week. We talked to yet another person who told us to come back the next day and wrote that on her interview letter and initialed it.

Long story short, yes children must go.

Also, if you don't get what you want, talk to someone else. Everyone in the embassy has some level of power and they might be willing to help if you have a legitimate concern.

Good luck!

my hubby (applicant) with our 3 kids (his derivatives: aged 7,5,4) were all present during their F2B interview at the US Embassy.

all applicants (and derivatives), regardless of age, must be present during the Embassy interview.
