Interview with the Consular Officer
On the day of the interview, the applicant must arrive at the Embassy 15 minutes before the stated appointment time. Late arrivals must contact our Call Center and reschedule the appointment.
Please Note: The time assigned for the visa interview is when the applicant may enter the Embassy, and not when the Consular Officer will see the applicant. Due to the processing time for each passport, and the fact that hundreds of applicants are interviewed each day, applicants should expect to wait several hours to be interviewed.
Who can accompany you during the interview?
- Only minors should come with both parents.
- Only elderly and/or disabled applicants that need assistance.
We only allow the applicant to come with a companion in the above circumstances. Because of limited space in our waiting room, we ask that applicants that do not meet these criteria come alone. Also, applicants should not bring baggage (suitcases, backpacks, bags) as they cannot enter the embassy with them.
