Visa Information

United States Visa Advisory

The United States has updated its visa policy for increased security. As a result, it now may take longer to obtain a visa. Advance planning by travelers is essential to avoid frustration and disappointment.

Review your visa status to find out if you need a U.S. visa or a visa renewal.

Plan to submit your visa application well in advance of your intended departure date.

Contact your nearest U.S. embassy or consulate for current time estimates and recommendations.

Visit the embassy or consular section website to find important information on how to schedule an interview appointment, finger scanning – if required – and pay fees. An interview is required as a standard part of processing for most visa applicants.
