Visa for Applicants Age 79+

On this page:


If you are over age 79 and have been to the U.S. before, you do not need to come to an interview at the Embassy. Like all applicants, you must have a valid passport, a photo taken within the past 6 months, and a completed DS-160 application. Like other applicants, make an appointment on-line in your name. If you are traveling with another family member who is also applying for a visa, that person can bring your application at the time of his/her interview. If not, you may ask an immediate family member to come to your appointment in your place. Again, the appointment will still be in your name.
