Nonimmigrant Visas


The U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince is on Ordered Departure status.  The reduction in staff impacts our ability to provide routine consular services.

Nonimmigrant visa services are suspended until further notice.  The Department has not designated a specific post for Haitian non-immigrant visa processing. Non-immigrant visa applicants in Haiti may apply at any of our U.S. embassies or consulates overseas where they are able to appear in person for their visa appointment.

  • The nonimmigrant visa (NIV) application processing fee, also known as theMachine Readable Visa (MRV) fee, returned to a one-year validity on October 1, 2022.
  • All MRV fee payments made on or after October 1, 2022, are valid for 365 days from the date a receipt is issued for payment of the fee. Applicants must schedule an interview appointment or submit an interview waiver application within 365 days of paying the MRV fee. There is no requirement for the interview to occur during the 365-day period.

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.

You will have to select an available appointment time before the system will permit you to request an expedited appointment.
