Urgent information for visa applicants regarding novel coronavirus

As of March 16, 2020, the United States Embassy and Consulates in Canada are reducing routine Immigrant and Nonimmigrant visa appointments and are not accepting applications by mail. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. The MRV fee is valid and may be used for a visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel within two weeks, please request an emergency appointment by following the guidance provided at https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-ca/niv/information/faqs#need_earlier_appt.
