Appointment Wait Times

On this page:


All applicants are processed as efficiently as possible and the U.S. Embassy or Consulate 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.

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.

Please ensure that the interview location on the DS-160 matches your appointment confirmation. If the DS-160 doesn’t match the location, it may cause delays in our ability to conduct the visa interview and may require you to reschedule your appointment.
