Nonimmigrant Visas

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Cyprus 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.

The United States Embassy in Nicosia, Republic of Cyprus, has suspended routine non-immigrant visa services. We are providing appointments for immigrant visas and certain urgent non-immigrant categories. At this time, we are prioritizing services for citizens and residents of the Republic of Cyprus. To apply for a visa, or if you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at the GSS website, or dial +357 22-232-082, or email

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.

The Consular Section is located at the Embassy of the United States of America at Metochiou & Ploutarchou Street, Engomi, 2407 Nicosia, Cyprus.
