In general, a foreign national wishing to enter the United States must first secure a visa, either an immigrant visa for long-term residency or a nonimmigrant visa for a brief visit. Nonimmigrant visitor visas are available to those who wish to briefly enter the country for tourism (visa category B-2), business (visa category B-1), or a mix of both (B-1/B-2).
Applying for a visa involves numerous processes. Depending on the U.S. Embassy or Consulate, these processes may be done in a different order or in a different way. Please refer to the guidelines posted on the website of the U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

If you are of 13 and younger, then an interview is generally not required. If you are around 14 – 79 then it can be a requirement. For people over 80 and older its generally not required.

Consult the visa application guidelines on the website of the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you want to submit your application. It might be necessary to seek more paperwork to determine your eligibility. For instance, additional paperwork can be required to show proof of:
Your itinerary, your intention to leave the country following your vacation, and/or your financial capacity to cover any associated expenses.
To prove the reason for your journey and your intention to return home, you may only need to provide proof of your employment or family ties. If you are unable to pay the full cost of your trip, you may provide proof that someone else will pay some or all of the expenses.
Other important information
A tourist (B1/B2) visa holder is not allowed to accept a job offer or to work in the US.
You can’t be certain that you’ll get a visa. Make no final travel arrangements or purchases of tickets until you receive a visa.
A current U.S. visa is still valid in an old passport. A visa is valid until the expiration date unless it is cancelled or revoked. Do not remove a valid visa from a passport that has expired if it is present. For travel and entry into the United States, you may utilize both the valid visa in your expired passport and the new, valid passport.
