E-Visas for Family Members

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:

  1. Confirmation of appointment.
  2. DS-160 confirmation page for all applicants and dependents.
  3. 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).
  4. 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).
  5. 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.
