    Hi,

    Situation:

    I'm having H1 b valid till Dec 2019. I'm in USA now. My wife and son(3 months old) back in India. They are going for stamping for the 1st time.

    Questions:

    1. Does my wife and son( 3 months old) require separate DS 160 and separate appointments?

    2. Does my son also should go along with my wife for stamping?

    They do not need separate appointments, but they do need separate applications. He does not need to go with her to the appointment.

    With all respect to Ron, I don't believe so... you will have to create a separate application and can go as a group. We are on the same page here. I believe you need to take the kid, I will let the initiator to confirm.

    Applicants under 14 years of age or over 80 years of age from the date of submission are not required to appear for a nonimmigrant visa interview at any Embassy/Consulate in India.
