  • A valid passport
  • A diplomatic note explaining the purpose of the trip
  • One passport-style photograph (50*50 mm)

Travelers with diplomatic passports are exempted from the payment fee. However, in cases where a regular or service passport is submitted, all applicants are required to pay 160.00 USD/CUC for the interview fee.

The U.S Embassy wishes to remind Diplomatic Missions that the opportunity to appear for an interview before a consular officer under this procedure is a courtesy extended only to accredited foreign diplomats and their immediate family members.

Please note that diplomats on official travel to the United States with A and G visas are not required to appear before a consular officer and may send their documents through a mission courier, on any working day during the Consular Section's normal business hours.

Cubans with official passports who intend to apply for a nonimmigrant visa for unofficial travel must follow the regular procedure.
