My parents are planning to visit us this summer. They already have a 10-year B1/B2 visa. My nephew (12 years old) also wants to come with them. I have a question about his visitor visa.

My brother, his wife, and my nephew have tried to get a visitor visa two times and both times they were rejected without any reason. I assume that it was to do with consulate's standard concern about intent-to-immigrate. I honestly don't think they have a chance to get it third time (especially not knowing why it was rejected last two times).

Is there a way for my nephew to apply / get visitor visa for himself?
Is there any different visa for minor accompanying an adult?

Thanks

I got visa for my niece who was 3 yrs old at that time and I did the same drill that I did for my parents. No questions asked and visa granted.

The only extra thing you need is a letter from both parents that they allow the minor to travel; that's it.

Thanks for this great info. Did your niece's parents go to the consulate for visa interview? Od no visa interview was required?

Thanks again!

anyone else has similar experience or know of someone who got a visa for a minor?
