The U.S. Embassy opens new interview appointments for tourist visas (B1/B2) every Wednesday at 8 a.m. The new appointments will occur within a time frame of two to three weeks. Those with existing appointments, may wish to reschedule to an earlier day: Apply for a U.S. Visa | Schedule My Appointment – Dominican Republic (English) (ustraveldocs.com). Demand for tourist visas is very high, and not everyone seeking a new appointment will get one. However, every Wednesday you will have the opportunity to try again. We may also open interview appointments outside of this regular schedule. For information on how to apply for a visa, including how to apply via the Interview Waiver Program, please visit U.S. Embassies website.
