As of March 16, the United States Embassy in Port au Prince is cancelling routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa appointments. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. The MRV fee is valid and may be used for a visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at https://www.ustraveldocs.com/ht/index.html?firstTime=No to request an emergency appointment.
Interview waiver processing of nonimmigrant visa applications will continue. Applicants of a certain age group or those who are renewing a previous U.S. visa may be eligible to apply for a visa without attending a consular interview. Eligibility for an interview waiver will be determined as the applicant goes through the process of scheduling an appointment through this site. Those with immigrant visa appointments should wait for further information about a new appointment date
The Embassy remains open for passport and emergency services for U.S. citizens.
