Nonimmigrant 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.  We are pleased to announce that we are now conducting a limited number of student and exchange visitor non-immigrant visa interviews. Interviews are available for applicants in the F, J and M visa categories with an approved I-20 or DS-2019 form, including immediate family members who qualify for F-2 and M-2 visas.  At this time no other non-immigrant visa categories are available for interview.  We will continue to update applicants about any changes via our website and social media.  The MRV fee is valid and may be used to schedule an interview appointment in the country where it was purchased within two years of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at to request an emergency appointment.
