Apply for a U.S. Visa
in New Zealand
We have made significant progress and issued most of the worldwide backlog of nonimmigrant visa cases. We are working to bring the Consular Consolidated Database back to full operational capacity.
We continue to prioritize immigrant visas, adoption cases, and emergency nonimmigrant visa cases. We are printing visas for these cases AND ALL CASES with very few delays.
Please check with the embassy or consulate where you will apply for additional information.
DS-160 & Supporting Documents
An applicant must print and bring a copy of the DS-160 confirmation page together with the supporting documents with him/her when attending the interview at the US Consulate General in Auckland.
If an applicant has opted for drop box, the applicant must include a printed copy of the DS-160 confirmation page together with the supporting documents in the package to be sent to the US Consulate General.
Please note that after an applicant has submitted the online DS-160, he/she will receive the DS-160 confirmation page. If an applicant does not have DS-160 confirmation page and the supporting documents with him/her during the interview, or in the drop box package, the visa application process will be delayed.
