Effective Sunday, June 12 at 12:01 a.m. EDT, the CDC rescinded its Order requiring all airline or other aircraft passengers to show a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 to board any aircraft destined to the United States from a foreign country. Of note, CDC’s Order requiring proof of vaccination for non-U.S. citizen nonimmigrants to travel to the United States is still in effect. For more information see Requirement for Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination for Air Passengers.


Beginning April 1, 2022, all Tunisian student visa applicants will need to provide the original attestation de compte bloqué irrévocable (irrevocable locked bank account for study abroad) from their bank at the time of their visa interview. Be sure to save a copy, as you may be required to leave the original document at the U.S. Embassy.


As of September 1, the United States Embassy resumed certain nonimmigrant services, including: F, M, certain J categories (alien physician, government visitor, international visitor professor, research scholar, short-term research scholar, specialist, secondary school student and college/university student), C1/D, E, I, O, and P visas. While the Embassy aims to process cases as soon as practicable, there is likely to be increased wait times for completing such services due to substantial backlogs. The MRV fee is valid and may be used to schedule an interview appointment in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at ustraveldocs.com , or call 216 31 37 81 45. to request an emergency appointment.


As a result of the suspension of routine consular operations due to COVID-19 in early 2020 and the U.S. Department of State’s ongoing efforts to restore all routine visa operations as quickly and safely as possible, the Department has temporarily extended the validity of visa application fees until September 30, 2023.  If you have not scheduled a visa appointment by that date, your fee will expire and you will forfeit the right to use the fee for a visa application.



PLEASE NOTE: if you are applying as a family group, and members of your family are (1) under the age of 14 or over the age of 80, (2) are residents or citizens of Tunisia or Libya, and (3) have never been denied a visa to the United States, these individuals do not need a visa appointment. Please bring their DS-160 and proof of payment for their visa to your visa appointment (plus their birth certificate in the case of children under the age of 14).
