DS-160 question (for B2) – What is the Purpose of Your Trip?

Clanton, AL |

A retired parent will fill up the DS-160 online for a B2 visa to visit his LPR family in the USA. How to answer the question “what is the purpose of your trip?” Should it be “sightseeing” or other better answer?

Answering vacation seems not appropriate if a parent is old and retired, right? Any better answer?

  1. Every temporary visitor should answer "Vacations". For the expected length of travel, it should be no more than 6 months.

    Good luck!
