Questions regarding Immigrant visa appointments
June 28, 2021


When will the Embassy start sending out notifications to applicants? 

The U.S.Embassy Immigrant Visa unit has already started sending out notifications, it is important for applicants covered under the categories mentioned to frequently monitor the email addresses they have provided to NVC and/or the Immigrant Visa Unit for updates and scheduling purposes.

Do I have to contact anyone at the Embassy or will they contact me? 

No, if you’re waiting for an appointment, or your appointment was canceled, you do not need to reach out to the embassy at this time, they will contact you. The visa unit will be reaching out to those eligible to schedule interviews through email, including instructions on how to proceed. If you previously interviewed and were refused with a request for more documents, you should follow the instructions provided to you at the time of the refusal.

If my email or contact information has changed, who do I notify?

It is vital that embassy staff be able to reach you, so please be sure there is an accurate phone number and email on your profile. If you need to make changes, simply log on to your online profile and make the necessary changes.

We know this has been a difficult year and we appreciate your patience as we resume limited immigrant visa operations. Please continue to follow us on social media @EmbajadaUSAenRD for updates visit our website at https://do.usembassy.gov/visas/ for more information.
