Schedule My Appointment

Overview

Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Citizens of qualified countries may be also able to visit the United States without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program. If you do not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program or are traveling to study, work, or participate in an exchange program, you must apply for a nonimmigrant visa.

If you are not a resident of the Republic of Moldova you must schedule an appointment during one of the slots reserved for non-residents.  Please note that the wait time for non-residents is considerably longer. There are currently no appointments available in the next several months for non-residents.  Please check back on the website periodically, as appointment slots are released no more than a month in advance.

Applicants for U.S. visas are required to appear in person for a visa interview at the Embassy. You must schedule an appointment for that interview, either online using this website or through the call center.

Post advises all visa applicants that large bags, cell phones, iPads, iPods, personal laptops and other electronic devices, are not permitted in the waiting room.  For more information about prohibited items, please go to Security regulations.

Supporting Documents

To schedule a nonimmigrant visa appointment, you must have the following information and documents available:

  • A passport valid for travel to the United States with a validity date at least six months beyond your intended period of stay in the United States (unless country-specific agreements provide exemptions). If more than one person is included in your passport, each person desiring a visa must submit an application.
  • Your visa application (MRV) fee payment receipt
  • Your DS-160 confirmation page
  • Your e-mail address
  • If applicable, required documents based on visa class (such as a petition approval for petition-based visas; more information about visa types and information about each can be found here).

Restrictions to Changing Appointments

Applicants are limited to the number of times they can reschedule their appointments. Please plan accordingly so that you are not required to pay another visa application fee.
