  • Update for dual-nationals regarding recent U.S. Executive Order: Dual nationals with a valid passport issued by any country not restricted under the Executive Order may schedule appointments and apply for visas. U.S. embassies and consulates will process visa applications and issue visas to otherwise eligible applicants who apply with a passport from an unrestricted country, even if they hold dual nationality from a restricted country.  Those who qualify for visas will be permitted to travel to and apply for admission to the United States.
  • Visa applicants under 18 years old are required to interview with at least one parent.

  • If you are a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program partner but unable to travel to the United States under that program, you should apply for a nonimmigrant visa at least three months in advance of your desired travel. If you do not have imminent travel plans, you should pay the nonimmigrant visa application fee, fill out the DS-160 nonimmigrant visa application form at ceac.state.gov/genniv/, and schedule a visa appointment. If your travel is imminent, you may also request an expedited visa appointment. Please include in your request the date and purpose of your travel, as well as a copy of any U.S. Customs and Border Protection message you may have received regarding your ESTA status.
