Each year the United States welcomes millions of visitors to explore our tourist attractions, study at a university, attend business meetings, or spend the holidays with family. We welcome you to apply for a non-immigrant visa and to “Discover America”. This website will help you learn more about visa categories, how to apply, the interview process, and allows you to apply online for a non-immigrant visa. We hope to see you soon!

Individuals offering additional visa and passport services outside of the U.S. Embassy grounds are NOT affiliated with the Embassy. The Consular Section encourages all applicants to be wary of unscrupulous vendors who may grossly overcharge for services. Visa applicants should complete their applications, pay their fees, and print out confirmation pages or any other documents at home or with trusted sources before they come to the Embassy.
Visa applicants are responsible for the information in their applications, even if the application is filled out by someone else. Use of questionable vendors can result in the denial of a visa and/or ineligibilities to the United States.
