Renew My Business/Tourism Visa

On this page:


Let us first remind you that the basic requirements and interview for a visa to the United States are the same whether you are applying for the first time, or renewing your visa. However, if you meet certain requirements, you can make an afternoon appointment to renew your visa.

If there are several applicants making a single appointment (for example, a family), all members in your group must meet every one of the following requirements in order to schedule an afternoon renewal appointment; otherwise, you must all make regular morning appointments.

Remember that in addition to the following, it is always necessary to present the regular documentation necessary for a B1/B2 (tourist) visa.

Requirements for a Renewal Appointment

The applicant was born in Honduras and ALL of the following conditions apply:

    • Is residing in Honduras,
    • Possesses a valid B-1/B-2 visa (or one that has expired within the past 12 months), and
    • Has never been arrested or convicted of a crime, deported from the United States, denied entry to the United States, or have had any other problems or difficulties with U.S. Customs and Border Protection when attempting to enter the United States. 

 I meet all of the requirements.  How to apply for this program?
