Visa Appointments Canceled Until Further Notice
March 17, 2020

Effective March 18, 2020, the United States Embassy in Bridgetown, Barbados is cancelling all routine non-immigrant and immigrant visa appointments.

We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.   Please note that the MRV fee remains valid and may be used for a non-immigrant visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment.

The Renewal Interview Waiver (RIW) and Interview Waiver Program (IWP) remain operational.  Please see more information about these programs at https://bb.usembassy.gov/visas/.

If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately on a non-immigrant visa, please follow the guidance provided at https://bb.usembassy.gov/visas/ or call +1 246 623 9832 or +1 246 623 9833 to request an emergency appointment.​
