Visitor visa for parents


I am a retired bank officer. Our son is a student on CPT (no income). All his expenses are being funded by us. We, his parents, wish to visit him for 3 months. My nephew is sponsoring our visit. All expenses including airfare, living expenses, will be borne by us. I have sufficient property and liquid funds for the visit. My wife knows very little of our son’s university, course of study,etc. Will the visa interview be conducted combined for us, and can I answer all the questions of the VO.

I am not 100% sure but I think this can be done.

When you schedule the interview online for B-1/2, you can add the other applicant to the same slot and convert it into a family application. Each person still needs to complete separate DS-160 form and visa fees.
