Submitting 221(g) Documents

On this page:

Overview

The U.S. Embassy or Consulate may give you a 221(g) letter directing you to submit additional documents or information related to your visa application. Your application will be kept on hold at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate until you submit those documents.

All documents and information requested in a 221(g) letter should be submitted at the nearest Estonia Post office within one year from the date you received the 221(g) letter. Failure to submit the required information within one year will result in the suspension of your visa application. You will be required to submit a new visa application and pay all associated fees in order to continue with your visa application process.

How to Submit 221(g) Documents

Electronic Copies via Email

If you received instructions to send via email an electronic copy of a document, send it in PDF to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate which issued your 221(g) letter. Attachments must not exceed 3MB.
