All applicants require an interview appointment, except applicants applying for an official (A or G) visa and those who qualify for the interview waiver program. Generally, the following applicants may be eligible for an interview waiver:
- Applicants under 14 years old or older than 79; and
- Saudi citizens who are at least 50 years old and are renewing a B1/B2 that did not expire more than 48 months prior.
You will be informed if you qualify for the interview waiver after answering a series of questions when scheduling your appointment using the on-line appointment system. If eligible for an interview waiver, you will be issued an Interview Waiver Confirmation letter and instructions on how to mail-in your application.
