If you reside in, have traveled recently to, or intend to transit or travel through any of the above listed countries prior to your planned trip to the United States, we recommend you postpone your visa interview appointment until 14 days subsequent to your departure from the subject country(ries). Additionally, if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, or believe you may have been exposed to the novel coronavirus, you are strongly encouraged to postpone your appointment by at least 14 days.

For questions about rescheduling a pending consular appointment, please contact us for specific guidance. 

    As of March 16, 2020, the United States Consulate is cancelling routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa appointments. The Embassy is not accepting applications through the Interview Waiver Program (dropbox). We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. The MRV fee is valid and may be used for a visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at ustraveldocs.com/jo/jo-niv-expeditedappointment.asp to request an emergency appointment.

  • On January 31, 2020, a new Presidential Proclamation (“Presidential Proclamation 9983”) was issued which added to the ongoing travel restrictions of P.P. 9645 by expanding them to the nationals of six additional countries.  The restrictions only apply to immigrant visas and/or diversity visas, not nonimmigrant visas.  More information is available at this link.
  • Reciprocity fees for F and I visas for Jordanian applicants are now $106 (or JD equivalent) beginning January 9, 2020.
