Immigrant Visas

The U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince thanks consular customers for their patience as we continually work to serve the public while mitigating the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Although the Immigrant Visa unit is operating on a limited basis, processing only a limited number of immediate relative cases, we are hopeful that 2021 will bring positive news regarding the pandemic so we can implement a phased re-opening of routine visa services.  We will continue to update applicants accordingly via our website and social media.  If you have a question about a U.S. visa application, please write to

COVID-19 Information for Travel to the United States

Immigrant visas to the United States are processed for citizens and residents of Haiti at the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince.

To apply for an immigrant visa, a foreign citizen seeking to immigrate generally must be sponsored by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident immediate relative(s), or prospective U.S. employer, and have an approved petition before applying for an immigrant visa. The sponsor begins the process by filing a petition on the foreign citizen’s behalf with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You may wish to review our Directory of Visa Categories on to learn about the different types of immigrant visas to the United States. Then, follow the steps on the Immigrant Visa Process, on to begin applying for an immigrant visa.

Once USCIS has approved your petition and you have completed pre-processing with the National Visa Center (NVC), review the instructions given to you by the NVC, along with the information presented on this website, for further guidance and instructions.
