Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Citizens of qualified countries may be also able to visit the U.S. without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program. If you do not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program or are traveling to study, work, or participate in an exchange program, you must apply for a nonimmigrant visa.

If you are an applicant applying to renew a B1/B2, B1, B2, C1, C1/D, F, M or J visa that was issued to you after August 21, 2007, you may be eligible for an interview waiver application if your visa expired within the last 12 months. For more information, please click here.

If you are an applicant under the age of 14 or over 79 years of age, applying for a B1/B2, B1, B2, C1, C1/D, F, M or J visa, you may be eligible for an interview waiver application. In addition to the documents you have to submit as listed in the Interview Waiver Confirmation Letter, you are also required to submit a letter explaining the trip you are planning to make, where you will be staying, and the purpose of your visit. For more information on visa application for children, please click here.

All other applicants between the ages of 14 and 79 applying for U.S. visas are required to appear in person for a visa interview at the U.S. Embassy. You must schedule an appointment for that interview, either online using this website or through the call center.

Supporting Documents

To schedule a nonimmigrant visa appointment, you must have the following information and documents available:

  • A passport valid for travel to the United States with a validity date at least six months beyond your intended period of stay in the United States (unless country-specific agreements provide exemptions). If more than one person is included in your passport, each person desiring a visa must submit an application.
  • The Receipt Number appearing on your Post Fiji receipt (contact the call center if you need help finding any of these numbers).
  • Your DS-160 confirmation page
  • Your e-mail address
  • If applicable, required documents based on visa class (such as a petition approval for petition-based visas; more information about visa types and information about each can be found here).

Restrictions to Changing Appointments

For each visa application fee receipt, applicants are only allowed to reschedule their appointment twice.  If applicants are unable to attend/cancel a third scheduled appointment, they will need to pay another visa application fee in order to schedule a new appointment. We remind you that the visa application fees are valid for one year from the date of payment, and are non-refundable and non-transferable.
