Submitting 221(g) Documents

The U.S. Embassy may issue a "221(g)" letter directing you to submit additional documents or information related to your visa application. Your application will be kept on hold at the Embassy until such a time as you submit those documents.

All additional documents and information asked for by the Embassy in a 221(g) letter should be submitted at the nearest Aramex courier location within one year from the date the 221(g) letter was given to you. Failure to submit the required information within one year will result in the suspension of the application and a new application (and all associated fees) would be required in order to continue the application process.

How to Submit 221(g) Documents
    Step 1

    Click the Submit Documents button at the bottom of this page to print a 221(g) submission slip. This slip must be taken to an Aramex courier office when you drop-off your documents for delivery to the Embassy. Clicking the Submit Documents button also allows you to change your document delivery address if you wish.

    Step 2

    Go to the nearest Aramex office. Take your 221(g) submission slip, the 221(g) letter given to you at the Embassy, and all documents requested by the Embassy.

    Step 3

    Drop-off your documents and the 221(g) submission slip at the Aramex courier office. Aramex will give you a copy of your airway bill as a receipt for your documents.

    Step 4

    Aramex will deliver your documents to the Embassy.

    Step 5

    Aramex will return your documents and your passport to you at your chosen document delivery address. If issued, your passport will contain your visa. You may also receive a new 221(g) letter.
