The U.S. Consulate General in Krakow will be closed for visa services from Monday, July 25th through Sunday, July 31. If you require an emergency nonimmigrant visa appointment for travel to the United States during this time period, please direct your request and visa application to the U.S. Embassy in Warsaw.
If you are a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program partner but unable to travel to the United States under that program, you should apply for a nonimmigrant visa at least three months in advance of your desired travel. If you do not have imminent travel plans, you should pay the nonimmigrant visa application fee, fill out the DS-160 nonimmigrant visa application form at ceac.state.gov/genniv, and schedule a visa appointment. If your travel is imminent, you may request an expedited visa appointment. Please include in your request the date and purpose of your travel, as well as a copy of any U.S. Customs and Border Protection message you may have received regarding your ESTA status.
More information about restrictions to travel under the Visa Waiver Program, including the requirement for an electronic passport, is available at https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/visit/visa-waiver-program.html.
