Please do not call to inquire about friends or families who have been refused a nonimmigrant visa. Under U.S. law, visa records are treated as confidential, and we cannot discuss nonimmigrant visa cases, including refusals or issuances.
Please do not send unsolicited original or supporting documents via fax, post, or messenger for nonimmigrant visa applications. We cannot accept them. It is a visa applicant’s responsibility to produce the information requested by the consular officer at the time of the interview. Please send supporting documents directly to the applicant, who should present them during his or her interview. The Consular Section assumes no responsibility for documents delivered outside of the application process.
Biometric processing can take up to one week to clear. Typically applications take a minimum of 24-48 hours, but many take longer. Visa applications must clear all data checks prior to issuance.

Once a visa application is received at the Embassy, it cannot be expedited. Please plan accordingly.

*The Embassy cannot expedite a visa due to lack of planning.
