COVID-19: Processing News

Due to the novel Coronavirus outbreak, US embassies and consulates are temporarily suspending routine services.

Nonetheless, it is still possible to apply for a B1/B2 now.

Applying now is recommendable since it allows foreign nationals to get an appointment for a interview, depending on Embassies or Consulates availability and restrictions.

Interview slots fill up fast and applying after the quarantine is lifted can result in a much later appointment date.

Once approved, the B1/B2 is valid up to 10 years.

RENEWALS Update: If your visa has expired in the last 48 months, you can now renew it without going to an embassy for an interview.
