Welcome to the Nonimmigrant Visa Unit

Welcome to the Nonimmigrant Visa Unit of the U.S. Embassy in Caracas, and thank you for your interest in visiting the United States.

Most temporary visitors to the United States must apply for and obtain a nonimmigrant visa before beginning their journey.  We encourage applicants to learn as much as they can about the laws, regulations and policies involved in processing a nonimmigrant visa application.

Consular Notice

The U.S. Embassy in Caracas continues to issue visas. To provide better service to our visa applicants, the Embassy is implementing new appointment and fee payment procedures.

The new system is more convenient and affordable for users.

It eliminates the previous appointment-scheduling fee, the need for a PIN, and the Call Center contact fee. Furthermore, the new system includes document delivery, thus reducing the overall cost of applying for a U.S. visa.

Effective October 25, 2014, all applicants for all non-immigrant visas (including tourist, business, exchange, student, and performer) will schedule an appointment through the new system. 

For further information on visa application, please go to the Visa Information Service webpage.

PLEASE NOTE: All previously scheduled appointments through November 30th will be honored. If you paid on Banco Provincial prior to October 25th, 2014, and weren't able to schedule an appointment on the previous system, please send us an email and attach a scan of the DS-160 with proof of payment.

The information in this website is designed to help you understand the process and, if a visa interview is required, come to the interview prepared.
