Appointment Wait Times

On this page:


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

Due to a limited interviewing capacity the United States Embassy in Riga, Latvia is only able to provide a small number of nonimmigrant visa services to third country nationals not resident in the Embassy’s consular district of Latvia. We are not able to serve non-resident applicants for exchange visitor, student and temporary work visas or consider group interview requests from non-resident visa applicants. Visa interview appointment wait times for non-residents are significantly longer than for other applicants.

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.
