Hello everyone, please does anyone know the best solution to my problem? I invited my mum to visit me on B1/B2 visa this summer and after booking the interview date which is on May 23 I  know her passport will expire this June 2019 but she has been to the immigration office to renew her passport but her passport is not still ready since ending of March please I don’t know what do to save the day do I need to change the date or can she attend the interview with the same passport that expired in June and explain to them. Please I will wait for your response and thanks.

Rescheduling is the best choice.

Usually for interview, they want the passport to be valid for at least the intended duration or even 6 months beyond the intended period of stay for some countries. They might not even stamp her passport even if she gets approved.

When entering the USA, what the CBP will do is, if you present yourself at the border and your passport only has 1 month of validity remaining,  your authorized stay will  end the same day as the expiration of the passport 


YMMV

I know but this is irrelevant to OP’s concern. This is applicable to people with visa in passport that may expire at some point. The post is about the interview for the visa.

 

From Ustraveldocs.com

Q.1 How long does my passport have to be valid in order to apply for a U. S. visa?

You must possess a passport valid for travel to the United States with a validity date at least six months beyond your intended period of stay in the United States (unless country-specific agreements provide exemptions).
