Scheduling Interview for Parents Together

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Fellow VJers,

I just started F2A immigrant visa for my wife recently. In the meantime while I'm waiting, I'm planning to invite my parents to visit US for couple of months. I have not started the non-immigration visa process yet. while I'm doing research, I am stuck with a question which I did not find information anywhere. And I thought better ask the fellow VJers.

With new online visa application and interview scheduling process, how can my parents schedule appointment together? Both of my parents do not speak English and planning to attend interview in Nepalese language. They prefer going to the interview together, not separate, if at all possible. I'm completely unaware of the process as I'm still researching, but it would be great help if anyone is familiar with this process, scheduling parents or family members for the appointment together.

Share of your knowledge is greatly appreciated.
