Renew My Visa


Important information for visa applicants regarding novel coronavirus:

From March 18, 2020, the U.S. Embassy is not accepting applications by Interview Waiver, Renewal by Mail, Drop Box, and Mail-in for all categories. We will resume routine visa service as soon as possible, but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.



The U.S. visa application process is the same whether you are applying for the first time or renewing your visa.

However, if you have previously been issued a U.S. visa, you may not be required to personally appear for an interview.

It is important to know that your visa may still be valid if the passport it is in expires. You can travel to the United States with your old passport containing a valid visa and your new, valid passport.


Currently, only B1/B2 and C1/D visa holders may participate in the Visa Renewal by Mail. Please see the link below for the program requirements:
