E-Visas for Family Members of Current E-Visa Holders
Application Procedures for Family Members of Treaty Trader/Investors
If you are the legally married spouse or unmarried child under the age of 21 of an E-visa holder, you may schedule your appointment for a derivative visa on-line, even if the U.S. business is not registered with the Consulate. This visa is based on the validity of the principal applicant’s visa and/or E-visa status; thus he/she must obtain their visa and/or E-visa status first or you must all obtain your visas simultaneously.
Applicants should bring the following required supporting documentation on the day of their interview:
- Confirmation of appointment.
- DS-160 confirmation page for all applicants and dependents.
- One 2×2 inch passport-style photograph for each applicant, taken on plain white background within the last six months (if your photograph could not be uploaded to your online DS-160).
- A photocopy of the principal applicant’s E-visa, as well as a copy of the marriage certificate (Heiratsurkunde) or birth certificate (Geburtsurkunde) showing proof of the relationship between the principal applicant and the derivative family member(s).
- Applicable fees.
Please be aware that all E-visa applicants above the age of 14 must appear at the embassy for a personal interview.
Children under 14, of individuals already in possession of valid E-visas, are generally eligible to mail-in their applications and not schedule an interview.
