DS 160 question


Registered Users (C)
My parents are applying for visa renewal for visiting me in US. They were earlier issued B1/B2 visa. What should I answer for the purpose of the trip? (I am leaning towards B2 but then the earlier visa was B1/B2.)

Business & Tourism (temporary Visitor) (B1/B2)
Toruism/Medical Treatment (B2)

Doesn’t matter really. If they might ever use a visa for business-related visits (assuming they get a multiple entry visa) then B1/B2 should be checked. Mostly they issue B1/B2 even if you just check B2.
