NOTICE: The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our passport/visa system. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or visa at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.
To apply for your visa, please visit our Visa Information Page or contact the Visa Call Center today:
- Call Center representatives are available Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (except on holidays)
- Applicants must make their payments at an authorized Citibank location.
- There is no home delivery service.
Important Note: Processing time for visa issuances from the time of the interview to receipt of the visa is approximately one week. Same-day service is not typically available. The U.S. Embassy strongly urges all individuals to apply for their visa at least three months in advance of planned travel.
