Appointment Wait TimesOn this page:
All applicants are processed as efficiently as possible and the U.S. Embassy/Consulate strives to keep the wait time for appointments as short as possible. The earlier you book your appointment, the more likely you are to be able to get the interview date and time you want.
Nonimmigrant visa applicants are encouraged to apply at least three months in advance of the intended date of travel. So remember, apply early!
Visa Processing Time
Although visa processing time is typically short (1-3 days in Moscow and 2 days in St. Petersburg), processing time for specific cases may vary due to individual circumstances and other special requirements.
