    Embassy question

    This is about the US embassy but I think would apply to all countries

    We are applying for a US tourist visa for Nut and they give you an appointment to interview at the Embassy

    So he is 17yrs old, will they allow his mom in with him or he would do it alone?

    Thanks

    Since he is a minor, I think she will have to accompany him..

    But she can go anyway, many people take an interpreter, lawyer or someone from the many, many agencies around the embassies with them..

    A parent, or the legal guardian is required to attend also.

    What about if he is 18yrs old at the time
    He turns 18 on Feb27(I can't believe that!)

    I wonder if they will still allow her in
    Hopefully he can get an appointment before he turns 18

    Unfortunately the idiot got a new passport 2 weeks ago and took it to school to show off and lost It!!!
    So now delaying submitting his application with US Embassy and booking an appointment

    Over 18 a parent, or the legal guardian is not required to attend, whether or not they will allow it I don't know. But why the concern, it should be a pretty straight forward interview for him (a process more than anything).

    Not a concern I just think would helpful.
    I think he will get the visa fairly easy but mostly based on my wife's current visa to US and her frequent travels in and out of the US
    And they may not need to talk to her about that......they will have that info already
    But can't see it hurting.....either

    If they needed to talk to her they would ask her to come.

    Its pure process, and if she comes or not won't matter. Just tell him to tell the truth, they won't care what he says unless he throws up flags which is unlikely if he tells the truth.

    The only advice, Tell him if he doesn't know the answer to a question tell them, he doesn't know. Not the Thai way of making up what he thinks they want to hear.
