Requesting an Expedited Appointment

In order to request an expedited nonimmigrant visa appointment, applicants must first complete the online, DS-160 nonimmigrant visa application and book an appointment, even if the first available appointment falls after your intended date of travel. Once you have completed the online application and booked an appointment, you are welcome to write the nonimmigrant visa unit at to request an expedite. In writing to us, please provide a brief explanation as to your purpose of travel and why an expedited appointment is needed. Please note that our capacity to accommodate expedited appointments is limited and we may or may not be able to accommodate your request.
