I am applying for a B1/B2 visa. I want to take my kids along on the trip to the USA? Can Iadd them as dependents on my visa application and is there a separate fee for dependents?
No, you can't. Everyone applies on a separate application form and pays the fee separately.
If several members of a family or group apply for a U.S. visa, a separate DS-160 form is required for each applicant, independent of age. Applicants have two options:
- Fill out a new DS-160 form for each applicant; or
- Fill out an initial DS-160 form and follow the instructions on the “thank you” page at the end of the form for creating a family or group application.
When you select this option, certain information from the initial application, such as destination, will automatically be imported to and displayed on a new application. Please note that if you use this option you must still create an individual application for each family member or for each individual within the group.
