Applicants should NEVER purchase tickets prior to receipt of their passport with visa. We cannot expedite the pick up of visas on the basis of pre-purchased tickets. The pick up location cannot be changed after the date of interview.

Dear Consular section clients, please be advised that our regular pick-up/drop-off service between 4:00- 4:30 p.m. at the main entrance will be moved to 2:30 – 3:00 p.m. on Friday, October 24, 2014. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Nonimmigrant and immigrant visa application fees for certain visa categories will change on September 12, 2014. All visa applicants must pay the fee amounts in effect on the day they pay, with the exception of Immigrant Visa application processing fees paid domestically to the National Visa Center (NVC), which will be effective as of the date of billing.  Fees that will decrease are not refundable. If you paid a visa fee before September 12, 2014 and that fee decreased, we cannot give you a refund.  Fees that will increase (nonimmigrant fees only): Visa fees paid will be accepted 90 days after the new fees go into effect, as follows:

  • If you paid your visa fee before September 12, 2014, and your visa interview is on or before December 11, 2014, you do not have to pay the difference between the new and old fee amounts.
  • If you paid your visa fee before September 12, 2014, and your visa interview is on or after December 12, 2014, you will be required to pay the difference between the old and new fee amounts – no exceptions.
