As we embark on a busy, holiday travel season, here are Celebrezze Law’s tips for any individuals attending a visa appointment at a U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate abroad:
1. Check Your Passport: Be sure you have a valid visa in your passport before traveling abroad, or make sure will be able to go to a U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate abroad during your trip abroad to obtain a new visa.
2. Plan ahead: As soon as you know your travel dates, be sure to arrange your visa appointment at the U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate closest to your destination.
- Not traveling to your home country? Be sure the U.S. Embassy or Consulate you’ll be visiting accepts “third-country nationals” (TNCs).
- Try to arrange the appointment as early in your visit as possible, to give the most amount of time for processing.
3. Be prepared: Be sure to review the U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate website and bring all needed support documentation. You don’t want to be delayed because you forgot to bring a document.
4. Not Sure What to Expect?: Check out this video from the U.S. Embassy in London for information on the logistics of the visa process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzZOvF1EEXE
