My wife and I both need to apply for new visa stamps, and we are both eligible for dropbox appointments. I was able to schedule my appointment in the near future, but there were no slots available for my wife for several months. Do we each need separate dropbox appointment slots, or can she just apply with me during my slot?


Each spouse needs to apply based on his or her individual appointment slot. After the appointments are scheduled, the consulate has discretion to then grant an expedite appointment to the spouse with the later appointment date. There is no guarantee that this will be granted, but there is no harm in requesting it. (12.May.2022)
