Appointment Wait Times

On this page:


Overview

All applicants are processed as efficiently as possible and the U.S. Embassy or Consulate 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.

NOTE: Please note that the wait time for a visa appointment for non-residents is routinely two to three months and very often no appointments are available. If an immediate appointment is needed please note the U.S. Embassy in Kiev does not have a wait time and has a Russian-speaking staff.

Visa Processing Time

Although visa processing time is typically three working days, processing time for specific cases may vary due to individual circumstances and other special requirements.
