We are Polish citizens, based in the UK, thinking about travel to Puerto Rico. Me and my wife we have B-1/B-2 Visa valid till 2021. We have two kids (4.5 and 2) who have passports but don't have visas.

Do we need to apply for visas for them?

Handy links:

I gathered that children under a certain age don't need to attend an interview, but do they need visas at all?


Yes, your children need visas unless they are eligible for the Visa Waiver Program. For example, if they are British citizens then they can travel with ESTA authorisation provided that your visit to Puerto Rico will not exceed 90 days.

  • Thanks, will book an appointment with embassy. Can you enhance your answer with some reference / link? – Mars Robertson Nov 24 '16 at 9:59

    @MichalStefanow your link seems to be all that is needed. The children are exempted from the requirement for an interview. If they didn't need a visa at all, the page would say so, but it does not. – phoog Nov 24 '16 at 10:05
