*Delayed cases: If you have presented yourself during an interview more than 30 days ago and you were given a green letter (delayed case – 221 g code) and you need to know the status of your case, please click here.
*Error on the visa: It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all biographical data on the visa is correct. Any error on the visa could create significant delays at the Port of Entry in the United States. If there is an error in the visa data, which was not based on the applicant’s passport and was simply a consular error, a replacement machine-readable visa will be issued at no cost to the applicant, up to one year from the visa’s original date of issuance and only for the remaining validity of the original visa. In these cases, the applicant can drop his/her passport off at the Embassy any weekday (Monday thru Friday) at 2 pm to have the error corrected. After one year of issuance, the applicant must apply for a new visa and pay a new MRV fee and reciprocity fee if applicable. These applicants will only need to schedule an appointment with the Visa Information Service if the error occurred as a result of an error in the applicant’s passport bio page. Otherwise, if it was a consular error, the applicant can come to the Embassy any weekday (Monday thru Friday) from 8 am to 12pm and submit the appropriate fee, application and be interviewed by a Consular Officer.
