London/Belfast US Embassy VISA Updates
London/Belfast US Embassy VISA Updates

As of July 27, 2020, the United States Embassy in London and as of August 3, 2020 the United States Consulate General in Belfast are resuming certain immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services, including F-1 and M-1 student visa categories.

There are likely to be increased wait times for completing such services due to substantial backlogs.

The MRV fee is valid and may be used to schedule an interview appointment in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment.

If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided through your Visa Appointment Service account to request an expedited appointment. Once you have booked the earliest available appointment, you can then follow the on-screen instructions to request an expedited appointment.

When new appointment dates are available for booking, they will display through your appointment calendar within your Visa Appointment Service account. If no appointments are available when you first check, please continue to check your account as any newly released appointments will show on your appointment calendar.
