Important Notice

The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our visa system.  This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a visa at this time.  We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.

If you paid your visa fee before December 14 and want to schedule your appointment, or if you paid your visa fee before December 14 and have already an appointment and want to reschedule it, please email the Consulate that you intend to interview and provide a scan of your payment confirmation.

Farsi Speakers  -- Plan Ahead: The Nonimmigrant Visa Unit in Frankfurt will not have a Farsi speaking officer during the months of July and August 2014.  Applicants who are not conversant in either English or German are advised to (1) apply for their visa at one of the visa processing posts designated to serve Iranian applicants (Yerevan, Ankara and Dubai), (2) postpone their visa application until September or later, or (3) bring a Farsi-language translator.  Iranian applicants should also be aware that the visa process often cannot be completed during the normal validity of a Schengen visa, and may require multiple trips to Germany.
