Welcome to the Immigrant Visa Unit
Welcome to the Immigrant Visa Unit of the U.S. Embassy in Caracas, and thank for your interest in immigrating to the United States.
We encourage applicants to learn as much as they can about the laws, regulations and policies involved in processing an immigrant visa application.
The information in this web page is designed to help prospective immigrants understand the process and come to the visa interview prepared.
The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our visa system. We are operating at a significantly reduced capacity and will be until we clear the document backlog.
This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category.We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon. We will be posting updates to Travel.State.Gov as more information becomes available.
