Group Appointments

The Embassy will process some applications as a group for greater convenience and efficiency. One example of a common group would be entertainers traveling to the United States to perform together.

Procedure to obtain a Group Appointment

If you think that your group may qualify for this special processing:

Step 1: Pay the MRV application fee. (Payment help and fee information.)

Step 2: Complete the Nonimmigrant Visa Electronic Application (DS-160) form.

Fee Information

Step 3: If you believe that you qualify as a Group as explained above, you should fill out the Group Access Code Request Form and wait for a response from the Embassy.

Step 4: If the Embassy approves your request, you will be sent a Group Access Code which one member of the group can then use to schedule a Group Appointment online. That organizer will need to have the fee payment information and DS-160 barcode numbers for every group member. If the Embassy does not approve your request, then every member of the group should schedule their own individual interviews.

Step 5: Visit the U. S. Embassy on the scheduled date and time of your interview. Be sure to bring all required documents.
