Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Citizens of qualified countries may be also able to visit the United States without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program. If you do not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program or are traveling to study, work, or participate in an exchange program, you must apply for a nonimmigrant visa.

Applicants for U.S. visas are required to appear in person for a visa interview at the U.S. Embassy. You must schedule an appointment for that interview, either online using this website or through the call center.

Some applicants can apply for a visa without an interview; please see more information here.

Visa interviews are conducted in Polish and English. If you do not speak one of these languages you are encouraged to bring an interpreter to your interview. The interpreter may be a member of your family, provided he/she is at least 18 years old.

To facilitate an interpreter’s access to the consulate, the applicant must create a profile on this website, schedule an appointment, and then send a special request at, providing the full name of the interpreter (as it appears on the interpreter’s passport or other identification) who will accompany the applicant to the interview. You must send your request only in English or Polish and wait for the request confirmation.

For security purposes, the interpreter will not be allowed access to the Embassy/Consulate unless such a request is made at least 3 business days prior to the date of the interview.

We cannot guarantee that you will be issued a visa. Do not make final travel plans or buy tickets until you have your passport with a visa.

Supporting Documents

To schedule a nonimmigrant visa appointment, you must have the following information and documents available:

  • A passport valid for travel to the United States with a validity date at least six months beyond your intended period of stay in the United States (unless country-specific agreements provide exemptions). If more than one person is included in your passport, each person desiring a visa must submit an application.
  • Your visa application (MRV) fee payment receipt.  Please see more information about the MRV fee.
  • Your DS-160 confirmation page
  • Your e-mail address
  • If applicable, required documents based on visa class (such as a petition approval for petition-based visas; more information about visa types and information about each can be found here).

Restrictions to Changing Appointments

Applicants are limited to the number of times they can reschedule their appointments. Please plan accordingly so that you are not required to pay another visa application fee.
