Nonimmigrant Visas

September 28, 2020

Due to COVID-19, the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince is unable to offer non-emergency nonimmigrant visa services at this time. We are unable to provide a specific date when we will be able to resume routine visa services. Please continue to monitor this site for up-to-date information.

For nonimmigrant visas, the U.S. Mission will extend the validity of your visa application processing fee (known as the MRV fee) until December 31, 2021, to allow applicants an opportunity to schedule a visa appointment with the already paid fee once routine services resume.

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince is responsible for providing visa services to those seeking to enter the United States for a temporary period and for those wishing to take up indefinite or permanent residence in the United States.

Please visit our Global Support Services (GSS) website for complete information on applying for a nonimmigrant U.S. visa, including a directory of nonimmigrant visa categories.

Once you have paid the fee, go back to the U.S. Visa Information Service for Haiti website. You will have to select an available appointment time before the system will permit you to request an expedited appointment.

Note: Receipt of an expedited appointment has no bearing on whether or not you are qualified for a visa.  Your eligibility to receive a visa will be assessed and decided at the time of your interview.
