Important message for applicants:
Systems issues that have affected the Department of State’s ability to issue visas are being resolved; all applicants can schedule appointments as normal.
Please be aware the Deutsche Post service is currently impacted by strikes. In general the Deutsche Post is managing to reduce the negative impact on customers with 85% of letters reaching their destination on time. Please reference this website to see if your area is affected.
Farsi Speakers -- Plan Ahead: The Nonimmigrant Visa Unit in Frankfurt does not currently have a Farsi speaking officer. Applicants who are not conversant in either English or German are advised to apply for their visa at one of the visa processing posts designated to serve Iranian applicants (Yerevan, Ankara, and Dubai) or bring a Farsi-language translator. Iranian applicants who choose to apply in Frankfurt should 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.
Welcome to the U.S. Visa Information Service for Germany. On this website you can find information about U.S. immigrant and nonimmigrant visas and the requirements to apply for each. You can also learn how to pay the required visa application fee, and book a nonimmigrant interview appointment at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin and the Consulates in Frankfurt and Munich.
