Please note: Wait times for interview appointments vary by location, season, and visa category, so you should apply for your visa early. Please monitor the Official U.S. Department of State Visa Appointment Service as scheduling is constantly being updated and new appointments are always being added.
Please Note: If you take a resident appointment slot, you must bring your residency permit if you are not a Cypriot passport holder.
A Consular Officer will interview you to determine whether you are qualified to receive a visitor visa. You must establish that you meet the requirements under U.S. law. Ink-free, digital fingerprint scans will be taken as part of the application process.
After your visa interview, the Consular Officer may determine that your application requires further administrative processing. You will be informed if this necessary.
If you are approved for a visa, your passport with your new visa will be returned to you via your local ACS Courier.
Please note: A visa does not guarantee entry into the United States. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials at the port-of-entry have authority to permit or deny admission to the United States.
