Visa Wizard

The results from this Visa Wizard do not guarantee that you will be eligible under law to receive a visa.  You must meet all legal requirements of the visa for which you are applying.  The consular officer at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you apply will determine your visa eligibility and the visa category suitable for your purpose of travel, based on U.S. immigration law.

Please note that multiple Presidential Proclamations issued as result of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic may also affect your eligibility for a visa.  

Please check with your local U.S. Embassy or Consulate to find out about visa services they currently provide.

Note: The Visa Wizard includes the most common visas, but does not include every visa.
