Useful Visa Guidelines


Resources for Traveling to the US
Because of the number of visa applications and the need for thorough security reviews, the visa application process can take several weeks. It is strongly encouraged travelers to apply for their visas as early as possible.

Contact the nearest U.S. consulate or embassy for details on visa application procedures.
