Apply for a Visa

On this page:

Overview

Please confirm whether or not you need to apply for a visa. You may not need to apply for a new U.S. visa if you already hold a valid U.S. visa or are a national of a Visa Waiver Program participating country.

If you do need to apply for a nonimmigrant visa, please follow the steps below.

How to Apply

    Step 1
    Pay the visa application fee.

    Step 2
    Complete the Nonimmigrant Visa Electronic Application (DS-160) form.

    Step 3
    Schedule your appointment on this web page. You will need three pieces of information in order to schedule your appointment:

    • Your passport number
    • Your MRV fee payment receipt number
    • The ten (10) digit barcode number from your DS-160 confirmation page

    Step 4
    Visit the U.S. Embassy/Consulate on the date and time of your visa interview. You will need to bring a printed copy of your appointment letter, your DS-160 confirmation page, one recent photograph, your current passport and all old passports. Applications without all of these items will not be accepted.
