Renew My Visa

On this page:


Overview

It is important to know that your visa remains valid until its expiration date, even if the passport containing the visa expires. You can travel to the United States with your old passport containing the valid visa and your new, valid passport.

The Embassy offers expedited appointments to applicants renewing visas who meet all of the qualifications below.  Our appointment system will use a series of questions to determine your eligibility for this program.  Qualified applicants will be directed to select an appointment time that is designated for an expedited appointment.  Just follow the instructions in the system and you will be automatically directed to the correct appointment type.

If you schedule an appointment for a visa renewal, but do not meet the requirements, you will be instructed to reschedule for a regular appointment. If you are applying with family members who do not qualify for a renewal appointment (and are over the age of seven), all family members will be instructed to reschedule regular appointments.
