How to Schedule a Visa Appointment
The U.S. Visa Service handles the scheduling of all interview appointments. Please visit their website for more information on scheduling an appointment for a nonimmigrant visa interview.
We always recommend that individuals apply for visas well in advance of their proposed date of travel. No assurances regarding the issuance of visas can be given in advance. Therefore, final travel plans or the purchase of non-refundable tickets should not be made until a visa has been issued and you have received your passport via DHL. Please note that some cases may require additional administrative processing that adds to the time required to process your visa application.
Fingerprinting and a personal interview are required for all applicants, with limited exceptions. Diplomatic and Official visa applicants do not have to appear for an interview in most cases. Additionally, in certain emergency situations, an applicant may request an expedited appointment.
