Applicants for H1B, H2B, L1, and certain J categories and their dependents covered by Presidential Proclamation 10052 should request an appointment only if you have reason to believe you may qualify for one of the exceptions listed in the Proclamation here.

Please note, you must wear a face mask when visiting the Embassy or Consulate General. If you are feeling ill or have reason to believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, please do not enter the Embassy or Consulate General buildings and reschedule your appointment.

The Presidential Proclamations suspending the entry of foreign nationals who were physically present within 14 days in certain countries prior to their entry or attempted entry into the United States (Presidential Proclamations 9984, 9992, 9993, 9996, and 10041), and the Presidential Proclamations suspending the entry of certain immigrants and nonimmigrants who present a risk to the U.S. labor market following the coronavirus outbreak (Presidential Proclamations 10014 and 10052) remain in effect.

Attention: Nonimmigrant Visas applicants should submit electronically the DS-160 online form before making an appointment. Update your profile with the DS-160 barcode number by selecting “Update Profile” on this website. When scheduling your appointment, use the same barcode from your current DS-160. If you have made an appointment with an invalid or previously used barcode, you must update your profile at least three (3) business days prior to your appointment date with the new/valid barcode. Otherwise, you will not be allowed in for an interview and will need to make a new appointment using the new/valid DS-160 barcode. Please bring printouts of your DS-160 confirmation and appointment confirmation to your interview.

Please consult our Frequently Asked Questions to determine how those restrictions may apply to you. Please see our immigrant visa page for information relating to immigrant and diversity visas.
