Appointment Wait Times and Processing Times

On this page:


All applicants are processed as efficiently as possible and the U.S. Embassy strives to keep the wait time for appointments as short as possible. That said, the earlier you book your appointment, the more likely you are to be able to get the interview date and time you want.

Visa Processing Time

The average processing time at the Embassy is three days after you attended your interview in person.

Please note that processing time for mail-in applications is currently 4 weeks.

Please do not ask the consular staff at the Embassy about processing time. Even if you have already made specific flight arrangements, or are pressed for time, consular staff are not able to expedite your application faster than the average processing time and cannot make delivery predictions or guarantees. Processing time for specific cases may vary due to individual circumstances and other special requirements.
