Cancellation of Routine Visa Appointments

Information for visa applicants regarding novel coronavirus:  As of 17 March, the United States Embassy and Consulates in Pakistan are cancelling routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa appointments.  Your visa appointment stands as cancelled.  We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.  The MRV fee is valid and may be used for a visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment.  If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at our GSS site to request an emergency appointment.

Due to the suspension of IV services, Embassy Pakistan recommends that IV applicants consider postponing visits to a panel physician site to complete a medical exam.  Medical exam results are valid for a maximum of six months.

Go to our GSS site for current information about the criteria for a visa emergency.
