Consular services, including student visas, remain suspended

The U.S. Embassy remains closed for all routine services, since to determine our opening we follow, not only local country regulations, but also recommendations from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and directly from the State Department.  For these reasons we are unable to provide a specific reopening date. This closure includes all routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services at this time.

Unfortunately, this means we are unable to process student visas for students to arrive on time for the fall academic term. We encourage students to reach out to their universities and institutions on how to best proceed in these unusual circumstances. Thank you for your patience as our ability to provide services continues to evolve. Please continue to follow this website and for any updates.
