Appointment Wait Times

On this page:


All applicants are processed as efficiently as possible and the U.S. Embassy strives to keep the wait time for appointments as short as possible. That said, 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. Remember: apply early!

Please do not bring personal electronic devices such as cell phones, radios, blackberries, ipods, laptops, etc. to your visa interview. These items are prohibited in the U.S. Embassy.
