Scheduling a Visa Interview Appointment

Libyan visa applicants may make a visa interview appointment with the U.S. Embassy in Morocco. Applicants can schedule their visa interview online or by contacting the call center from Morocco, the U.S., or Skype.

Payment of the Visa Application (MRV) Fee

Currently there are no banks in Libya authorized to collect the visa application (MRV) fee on behalf of the U.S. Embassy. In order to make a visa interview appointment, you must first pay the MRV fee at a listed branch of Banque Populaire in Morocco. A friend or family member may make the payment for you, however the payment must be in your name and include your passport number on the MRV fee receipt from the bank.

Visa Processing Times and Passport Return

The Consular Section returns passports with issued visas via a pass-back service managed by Aramex. According to Moroccan law, it is prohibited to send passports by mail across international (or domestic) borders. When making an appointment, all applicants must select one of two Aramex locations in Morocco for document pick-up. All successful applicants must pick up their passports at one of these two Aramex locations.

The Consular Section generally requires 3 business days to process a visa once it has been approved. During this time, the applicant's passport must remain in the Consular Section. Applicants from Libya should consider this when scheduling their interview appointment. An appointment scheduled on a Thursday or Friday may require that a successful applicant remain in Morocco over the weekend until the passport and visa can be returned early the following week.
