Operating Status

The U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo is providing limited processing of routine student and work visa appointments, as local conditions allow. Routine tourist visa appointments remain suspended at this time, and only cases that meet the requirements for emergency processing or are eligible for interview waiver are being scheduled.  

Because of limited capacity and safety precautions due to COVID-19, applicants should expect to experience delays in appointment availability. If applicants have an urgent need for travel, they may request an emergency appointment by following the guidance found at  https://www.ustraveldocs.com/do/do-niv-expeditedappointment.asp. 

Applicants seeking to renew their visas who meet the qualifications for an interview waiver, including children 13 years of age and under, are being processed. Eligibility requirements for visa renewal can be found at:  https://www.ustraveldocs.com/do/do-niv-visarenew.asp.  and  https://www.ustraveldocs.com/do/do-svc-visachild.asp#QuestionsandAnswers.
