Do I Have to Attend a US Visa Interview?

If you have to get a visa to travel to the US, you must attend an interview at your local US Embassy or Consulate. There are no exceptions.

The only exceptions are if you do not need a US visa to travel to the US or you are eligible for a Visa Waiver (ESTA). And even if you are eligible for an ESTA, if you are denied, you will have to attend an interview.
