U.S. embassies and consulates around the world have restarted visa processing, including B1/B2 visa applications.
However, please be aware that there are currently long waiting times for visa appointments. This is due to a backlog of applications resulting from the pandemic—visa services were temporarily interrupted during COVID-19.
For this reason, you are advised to submit your B1/B2 visa application as soon as possible before your intended travel dates.
Once approved, the B1/B2 is valid for up to 10 years.
RENEWALS: If your visa expired in the last 48 months, you can now renew it without going to the embassy for an interview.
Effective date: February 24, 2021
