  • Fees for Consular Services to Change on September 12, 2014

    Effective September 12, 2014, the Department of State will adjust processing fees for some services. The fees for most categories of immigrant visas will change, while fees for nonimmigrant visas largely remain the same.

  • Interview Waiver Program for Non-Immigrant Visas Now Available in Suriname

    You may be eligible to apply for a U.S. visa without an interview based on your age, or if you are renewing a U.S. visa that expired less than 48 months ago. The Interview Waiver Program (IWP) is available in order to expedite the visa application process. In most cases, using this service eliminates the need to come in for an interview. Like an interview, however, the use of the IWP does not guarantee visa issuance.
