• The U.S. Embassy understands that many visa applicants have paid the visa application processing fee and are still waiting to schedule a visa appointment.  We are working diligently to restore all routine visa operations as quickly and safely as possible.  In the meantime, rest assured that the U.S. Embassy will extend the validity of your payment (known as the MRV fee) until December 31, 2021, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the already paid fee.  Please continue to monitor this site for information on when we will return to routine visa operations.
  • In our continued efforts to protect our staff and customers, following potential exposure to a positive case of COVID-19 at our facilities, U.S. Embassy Beirut has suspended all visa services until further notice. Immigrant visa applicants will be contacted to reschedule their appointments as necessary. Non-immigrant visa applicants should monitor ustraveldocs.com for available future appointments.

  • The Aramex offices working hours are changing, the new schedule is from 8 am to 2pm.

  • The Interview Waiver Program is temporarily suspended in Lebanon.

  • On January 31, 2020, a new Presidential Proclamation (“Presidential Proclamation 9983”) was issued which added to the ongoing travel restrictions of P.P. 9645 by expanding them to the nationals of six additional countries.  The restrictions only apply to immigrant visas and/or diversity visas, not nonimmigrant visas.  More information is available at this link.
  • Please be reminded to NOT finalize your travel reservations until your U.S. visa is issued. Administrative processing time may delay your visa issuance and travel plans.
