Examples of groups include, but are not limited to, professional trainees and tour groups.
How to Apply
Step 1 The Group Coordinator will request a group appointment using the online appointment system. Once the request has been submitted, the Embassy or Consulate will respond via email.
Please do NOT add any group members / dependents before you have received an email saying your group request has received approval from the Embassy or Consulate. You will add the group members / dependents only after you have received the email confirmation.
Step 2 If the Embassy or Consulate approves the request then the Group Coordinator will receive an email alerting him/her to schedule appointments for each member of the group. The center cannot schedule appointments but agents are able to assist if questions arise. Should the Embassy or Consulate deny the request for a group appointment, the Group Coordinator will be notified of the denial by email and each group member must schedule individual appointments.
Note: The email confirming or denying the group request will come from firstname.lastname@example.org. Some email applications have rules which filter unknown senders into a spam or junk mail folder. If the Group Coordinator has not received the email notification, look for the message in junk and spam email folders.
Step 3 Each group member must pay the visa application fee.In the case of making a bulk fee payment, you will receive only one receipt number per transaction and will use this receipt number for each valid MRV fee paid.
