Schedule for Opening Interview Appointments

The U.S. Embassy continues to open new visa interview appointments for tourist visas (B1/B2) on a regularly scheduled basis every other Wednesday at 8 AM.  The new appointments will be opened two weeks in advance.  For example, on March 8, 2023, we will open tourist visa interview appointments for the period March 22 – April 4.  On March 22, 2023, we will open new appointments for the period April 5 – 18.  At the same time, we will also release additional B1/B2 interview appointments beyond the two-week timeframe, as our resources permit.  We will proceed according to this schedule until further notice.  Those with existing appointments, may wish to reschedule to an earlier day: Apply for a U.S. Visa | Schedule My Appointment – Dominican Republic (English) (  Demand for tourist visas is very high, and not everyone seeking a new appointment will get one.  However, every two weeks you will have the opportunity to try again.  For information on how to apply for a visa, including how to apply via the Interview Waiver Program, please visit
