How can I apply for an emergency visa in the United States?

Posted by Avisa:   02.11.2020

Visa processing to the U.S. is not an easy process, and time is costly. But if the circumstances are such that it is necessary to visit the U.S. as soon as possible, then you can apply for an urgent appointment for an interview with the U.S. Embassy.

An emergency visa to the United States is issued only if the applicant meets all the necessary criteria, which are below:

  1. Need medical care in the U.S. If you need to get emergency care in the U.S. or accompany your next of kin for treatment, then you can apply for an urgent interview.
  2. Funeral of a close relative.
  3. Urgent business trip. There are cases when it is necessary to urgently resolve issues with a business partner or the organizers of the event (conference) for which the date of the event has been changed to an earlier date.
  4. Students and exchange program participants who do not have time to come to the U.S. before the program starts.

To get permission to be interviewed urgently requires:

Pay the consular fee of the embassy;

Fill out a DS-160 visa application;

Write a request to the embassy with a request to undergo an urgent interview, as well as attach to the letter scanned documents confirming the need for an urgent trip.

The embassy staff will decide whether to approve the urgent appointment for the interview. Your request should be clear, concise, with a specific reason for an urgent trip to the United States. The list of supporting documents that need to be sent along with the request may be different. It will depend on the purpose of travel to the U.S.

If the application is approved, you will be able to go for an interview in the coming days. The decision to issue a visa or not will be made by a visa officer during the interview relying not only on the fact of urgent need to visit the U.S., but on your situation.

If this application is rejected, you will be able to go to the interview by selecting the nearest free date in your personal account. You can only submit an urgent interview application once.

Important: Travel to the U.S. for the purpose of visiting for birthdays of relatives, friends, attending weddings, christenings, concerts, festivals, travel on travel deal tickets are not grounds for an emergency visa.
