Notification Message for All Applicants:
Please be informed that your visa appointment will be canceled if you fail to choose the correct appointment for the “Select Visa Priority” (Non-Resident for third country nationals or Regular for Cambodian nationals only). The U.S. Embassy Phnom Penh has a limited capacity to provide visa services during the pandemic and are prioritizing Cambodian national students and business travelers. We are not processing visas other than B1/B2, F, M and J for third country nationals. We will not schedule visa appointments for other visa classes. We encourage you to contact another U.S. Embassy or Consulates in your country with this matter.

MRV Fee Extension Validity: 
The U.S. Embassy in Cambodia understands that many visa applicants have paid the visa application processing fee and are still waiting to schedule a visa appointment.  We are working diligently to restore all routine visa operations as quickly and safely as possible.  In the meantime, rest assured that the U.S. Mission will extend the validity of your payment (known as the MRV fee) until December 31, 2021, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the already paid fee.  Please continue to monitor this site for information on when we will return to routine visa operations.

Under Section 243(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, when so requested by the Secretary of Homeland Security due to a particular country’s refusal to accept or unreasonably delay the return of its nationals, the Secretary of State must order consular officers to suspend issuing visas until informed by the Secretary of Homeland Security that the country in question has accepted the individuals.
