(Updated: October 11, 2023)

All receipts for payment of Machine-Readable Visa (MRV) fees issued before October 1, 2022, expired September 30, 2023. There will be no extensions of fee validity. Applicants must have scheduled an appointment or submitted an interview waiver application before September 30, 2023 to avoid paying a new fee. If you paid the MRV fee on or after October 1, 2022, you must have scheduled the appointment within one year of your MRV payment date. Please note that the interview itself does not need to take place within one year, but an interview appointment needs to be made in the system, even if it is scheduled months into the future. Furthermore, applicants using MRV fees paid before October 1, 2022 to book an appointment are cautioned not to attempt to change their appointment dates on or after October 1, 2023. Doing so will result in forfeiture of both the original appointment slot and the MRV fee receipt. The applicant will be required to pay a new fee and submit a new application package.

Beginning April 1, 2022, all Tunisian student visa applicants will need to provide the original attestation de compte bloqué irrévocable (irrevocable locked bank account for study abroad) from their bank at the time of their visa interview. Be sure to save a copy, as you may be required to leave the original document at the U.S. Embassy.

PLEASE NOTE: if you are applying as a family group, and members of your family are (1) under the age of 14 or over the age of 80, (2) are residents or citizens of Tunisia or Libya, and (3) have never been denied a visa to the United States, these individuals do not need a visa appointment. Please bring their DS-160 and proof of payment for their visa to your visa appointment (plus their birth certificate in the case of children under the age of 14).
