Diplomatic and Government Officials
On this page:
G-1 through G-4 visas may be issued to diplomats and other government officials for official travel to the United States. Generally, the type of visa required by a diplomat or other government official depends upon their purpose of travel to the United States. There are very specific requirements which must be met by applicants in order to qualify for A, G or NATO visas under U.S. immigration law.
Applications for A-1, A-2, and G-1 through G-4 visas must be submitted to the U.S. Embassy Consular Section. A diplomatic note must accompany all A-1, A-2, and G1 through G-4 visa applications.
Applications for G-1 through G-4 visas may be submitted directly to the U.S. Embassy. All G-1 through G-4 visa applications must be accompanied by a diplomatic note or, for international organizations, an official letter requesting the issuance of a G visa. Do not pay an MRV visa application fee through this site, as it will not be refunded.
For detailed instructions, please visit the website of U.S. Embassy Helsinki on Diplomatic and Official visas.
