The Department of State announced that in response to COVID-19, it is suspending routine visa services at all U.S. embassies and consulates. Embassies and consulates will cancel all routine visa appointments as of March 20, 2020.
- This does not affect the Visa Waiver Program. See https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/faq?focusedTopic=Schengen%20Travel%20Proclamation for more information.
- Although all routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa appointments are cancelled, the Machine Readable Visa (MRV) fee is valid and may be used for a visa appointment in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment.
