The United States Consulate General Casablanca is now conducting interviews of applicants seeking all categories of immigrant visas as well as the following categories of nonimmigrant visas: C1/D (transit/crewmembers), E (treaty trader/investors), F (secondary school and college/university students), I (media professionals and journalists), J (physicians, government visitors, international visitor professors, research scholars, short-term research scholars, specialists, secondary school and college/university students), M (vocational students), O (individuals with extraordinary ability in Sciences, Arts, Education, Business or Athletics with a petition approved by USCIS), P (performing athletes, artists, or entertainers with a petition approved by USCIS), and R (religious workers with a petition approved by USCIS). The Consulate General is not conducting routine interviews for B1/B2 (business/tourist) visas at this time.

The Consulate General is also processing the following categories of nonimmigrant visas without an interview: A (diplomats and other foreign government officials), G (employees of designated international organizations and government officials participating in meetings of a designated international organization), and certain B1/B2 and C1/D renewals . Applicants under age 14 and over age 79 may qualify for an interview waiver even if they have not had a prior visa.

While the Consulate aims to process cases as soon as practicable, there is likely to be increased wait times for completing such services due to substantial backlogs. The MRV fee is valid and may be used to schedule an interview appointment in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at ustraveldocs.com , or call 212 520 485013 to request an emergency appointment.

All nonimmigrant visa application fee (also known as the MRV fee) payments made on or after October 1, 2022, are valid for 365 days from the date a receipt is issued for payment of the MRV fee. Applicants must schedule an interview appointment or submit an interview waiver application during this 365-day period. Please note applicants must only schedule their interview or submit their waiver application within the 365-day period. There is no requirement the interview must occur during the 365-day period. All receipts for payment of MRV fees issued before October 1, 2022, were extended until September 30, 2023, and remain valid until this date.

Secretary Blinken, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security, has temporarily expanded the ability of consular officers to waive the in-person interview requirement for individuals applying for a nonimmigrant visa in the same classification. Previously, only those applicants whose nonimmigrant visa expired within 24 months were eligible for an interview waiver. The Secretary has temporarily extended the expiration period to 48 months. This policy is in effect until December 31, 2021. This change will allow consular officers to continue processing certain nonimmigrant visa applications while limiting the number of applicants who must appear at a consular section, thereby reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission to other applicants and consular staff. Travelers are encouraged to review the website of the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate for detailed information on what services are currently available as well as eligibility information and instructions on applying for a visa without an interview.

If your visa application is approved, you will need to leave your passport with the Consulate for one week. We will send the passport and visa to the ARAMEX office for pickup. Unexpected events may cause a delay in this processing. As always, we strongly recommend that you do not make any final plans such as purchasing tickets until you actually have the visa in your possession
