Diplomatic and Government Officials

On this page:


Overview

A-1, A-2, and G-1 through G-4 visas may be issued to diplomats and other government officials for official travel to the United States. Generally, the type of visa required by a diplomat or other government official depends upon their purpose of travel to the United States. There are very specific requirements which must be met by applicants to qualify for A, G, or NATO visas under U.S. immigration law. 

Applications for A-1, A-2, and G-1 to G-4 visas for Honduran nationals or third country nationals may be submitted by courier to the U.S. Embassy Consular Section once an appointment has been assigned. A diplomatic note must be included in all A-1 and A-2 applications, either by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Honduran nationals or from accredited diplomatic missions in Honduras. Applications for G-1 through G-4 visa must include an employment contract/letter from the requesting international organization. 

Domestic employees of employers assigned to an international or bilateral mission applying for an A-3 or G-5 visa (A, G, or NATO visa holders) are not required to pay the MRV fee. Do not pay an MRV visa application fee through this site, as it will not be refunded.
