Systems issues that have affected the Department of State’s ability to issue visas have been resolved, and all applicants can schedule appointments as normal. All applicants should plan to attend their current appointments as scheduled. Applicants with passports at the Embassy will be contacted by Aramex once the passport (with a visa) is ready for pickup. Thank you for your cooperation.
Visa Application Procedures
The non-immigrant visa is required for persons desiring to enter the United States temporarily for a multitude of reasons. While international travelers with visitor (i.e. B-1 or B-2) visas comprise a large portion of temporary visitor travel to the United States, we also process visas for those seeking to study, work temporarily, as well as marry in the United States.
We thank you for your interest in applying for a non-immigrant visa. For a complete step-by-step guide on the visa application process, please click "How to Apply."
Should you have questions on the process, please contact us.
