Can family enter US embassy for K1 visa interview with me?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This may be a dumb question but I’ll be flying in for this interview and want to know if there’s an issue with someone attending with me? I know US petitioners can enter but does the same apply if a family member comes with me? They wouldn’t be attending the actual interview part just sitting with me til I’m done. Thanks!

No authorized people may enter the embassy if they don't have their name in the invitation. They may wait outside the embassy for you
