Query in Travel Companions Information in DS160 Form


I got my Approval notice for H1B Regular. I am now filling DS 160 FORM. I am planning to travel with my wife. But I have applied passport for my wife. It seems it will take 2 to 3 weeks. So I planning to get visa stamping for me first and then for my wife. So In DS160 Form in Section Travel Companions Information I have a question "Are there other persons traveling with you? " so on that whether I should mention my wife. If I mention my wife, whether I can go and attend interview as single. Please let me know your suggestion.

Yes, go ahead and mention your wife’s name there. If you guys take the interview separately, and if asked about this you can tell the truth - she was waiting for passport renewal and hence will go for stamping separately.
