I don't want to bring my toddler to the visa interview. Normally, the waiting time before being called is several hours, and during that time he may be hungry or get upset. In those cases, it will be very difficult for me to control him.
But I'm afraid the officer may want to take my baby's biometric or something like that, and requires him to present at the interview.
Please answer only if you had this experience, i.e. leaving your baby at home for the J-2 interview. Thank you.
I did the interview in London without my baby.
