HOW TO REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT IN A US EMBASSY

1. Visit the US Embassy website. In there, you will find the DS-160 Form for non-immigrant applicants.

2. Depending on the country from you are going to apply, make an appointment to visit the US Embassy. To look for your correspondent Embassy, visit: www.usembassy.gov

ATTENTION: Apply for a Visa does not mean it will be automatically issued. Do not purchase plane tickets until your visa has been approved, and remember to apply with enough time prior to your travel date. 

3. The documentation requested may vary depending on the Embassy. You will be usually requested to present the following:

  • Valid passport
  • Recent photograph (less than 6 months)
  • Forms and Applications
  • Documents of employment, reason for travel and financial status
  • Receipt of Fees
  • An post envelope (self-addressed) to return your passport with your visa stamp 

There is a live operator in case you need any assistance. Do not hesitate to call. Try to get all the documentation complete in your first interview. To fail on this may generate a second visit to the Embassy, which means more waiting time for a resolution. All cases might vary, and extra documents may be needed. 

4. You may wait up to two hours before your interview. If you can not apply by yourself, you can bring someone with you. You are not allowed to enter to the Counsular Office with electronic equipment such as mobiles or cameras. 

5. If your Visa is approved, you will get a stamp on your passport, and it will be return to you in the self-addressed post envelope requested. It usually takes 2 to 3 days for a resolution. But if you are requested with more documentation, this time could vary.

ATTENTION: You are requesting a Visa for an Internship/Training, you are not applying for a work permit, therefore you are not receiving a salary, but a stipend. 

We wish you good luck with your interview! Please, update us with on how you did as soon as possible.
