Update for non immigrant visa services
May 24, 2021


The U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo is still not processing routine B1/B2 visas. The Embassy remains closed for routine tourist visa in-person interviews. We continue to provide all U.S. citizen services and most immigrant visa services.  We are also prioritizing student visas, work and petition-based visas, as well as cultural exchanges and Summer Work Travel (SWT) visas.  We will resume routine B1B2 visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.

We continue to provide appointments in the future, as this is necessary to facilitate emergency requests. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at https://www.ustraveldocs.com/do/do-niv-expeditedappointment.asp  to request an emergency appointment.

For additional information or updates about our services, please continue to monitor our web page, as well our social media @EmbajadaUSAenRD.
