Processing Times and Return of Passport

Monitor the e-mail address you provided on your application. A Consular Officer reserves the right to request that any applicant appear in person for an interview. If you are required to appear for an interview or able to pick up your passport and/or visa, you will be notified at this e-mail address.

Approved visa applicants can generally return to the Embassy to pick up their visa one working day after the date of the appointment. Please note that some cases may require administrative processing-  we recommend that you do not purchase airline tickets until you have received your visa.

If your visa application is denied and you have further questions, please visit Visa Denials for more information.
