Consular-Related Visitors

The following persons may accompany a visa applicant during Consular-related visits:

  • Interpreter: Applicants may bring one interpreter if they do not speak English well enough to participate in an interview. Note: The working language of the U.S. government is English. The applicant is responsible for providing a translator for any language other than English, even if that language is an official language of Canada, i.e. French.
  • Special Needs Visitors: Applicants may bring one person to help if they are elderly, disabled, or if the applicant is a minor child applying for a visa.
  • Attorney: Attorneys will not be permitted to accompany clients into the waiting room or at their interviews.

Due to waiting room size, the large volume of applicants and the time required to screen consular clients, other accompanying persons cannot be admitted to the waiting room. Drivers, friends, and extra relatives must wait outside or return to meet the applicant after the interview has been completed - with the exception of applicants with children.
