If you require a visa, please visit http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ to 1) fill out the nonimmigrant visa electronic application (DS-160) form, 2) pay the application fee (schedule of fees), and 3) schedule an appointment for a nonimmigrant visa interview.
More information regarding visa categories is available from our website.
Systems issues that have affected the Department of State’s ability to issue visas are being resolved; all applicants can schedule appointments as normal.
