FAQs due to Coronavirus/COVID-19

Due to the ongoing impact of coronavirus/COVID-19, we ask that you check this information before contacting us, as your question may be answered on our Information for Nonimmigrant Visa Applicants following the Coronavirus / COVID-19 Outbreak webpage. The FAQs include crucial information for non-U.S. citizens, including individuals with urgent need of travel, LPRs, relatives of U.S. citizens, current and future visa applicants, and students.

Due to reduced staffing, we will be unable to reply to any questions submitted through our contact forms if they are answered in the FAQS, so it is vital that you read the FAQs in full before deciding whether to contact us.


Visa information is available from our website.  Please take the time to review the information before contacting us. If the answer to your inquiry is on our website, we regret that you will not receive a response.

Nonimmigrant visa appointments are scheduled online or through the call center.  They cannot be scheduled by emailing the Embassy or Consulate General.
