Appointment Wait Times

On this page:


All applicants are processed as efficiently as possible and the U.S. Embassy Riga strives to keep the wait time for appointments as short as possible. That said, the earlier you book your appointment, the more likely you are to be able to get the interview date and time you want.

For visa applicants who do not live in Latvia: Please note that, for overall safety reasons and to prevent the pandemic spread, the U.S. Embassy in Riga, Latvia is not offering appointments for applicants who do not have Latvian passports or Latvian resident cards. If you are a third country national not resident in the Embassy’s consular district of Latvia and an immediate appointment is needed please apply with another U.S. Embassy or Consulate that has a larger interviewing capacity and can interview in your spoken language.

Visa Processing Time

Although visa processing time is typically three working days, processing time for specific cases may vary due to individual circumstances and other special requirements.
