At Avisa, we are often asked “When it will be possible to schedule an interview at the US Embassy?” and “Does the US Embassy issue visas now”?
In this article we will give a detailed answer to these questions.
As of today, 01/20/2021, the earliest date for the B1 / B2 visa interview is the beginning of June. The dates appear a few times a week on the US embassy site and it is quite possible to sign up. Interview appointments that were scheduled for January and February have been canceled by the US Embassy. To obtain a tourist visa to the United States, you must meet certain criteria. Our consultation services from Avisa can help you to understand the details of your situation and assess your chances.
As for student visas in the United States, the F1 category, dates are currently available in February and as of now , interviews will still take place. It is quite possible to get a student visa to go to the USA if you have:
Citizens of Russia and Belarus can also register at the US Embassy in Kiev to obtain a visa.
All applicants who have paid the US Embassy visa fee but have not been able to get to an interview, will be able to use this fee until 09/30/2022.
Obtaining a visa to the United States in 2021 is realistic for such categories of visas as F1, C1 / D. For the B1 / B2 visa there is no exact information yet, but there is hope that the interviews will take place in May and June 2021.
Those lucky ones who have a valid visa to the United States can enter the country by observing the new rules:
01/18/2021, Donald Trump signed an order to lift the ban on entry to the United States from Brazil, the Schengen countries, Ireland and the UK. We remind you that the ban was introduced for these countries due to the coronavirus. This is good news for us, because it will allow us to fly to the United States with a stopover in one of these countries. This decision will enter into force on 01/26/2021. But do not forget that the new president may annul this order, so we advise you to follow the news.
Our company, Avisa, closely monitors the news from the USA, Canada, and the UK every day, so we are always aware of all the changes.
