Welcome, U.S. Immigrant Visa Applicants

You are at the Official Immigrant (permanent) Visa support website for the U.S. Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Start of limited visa processing

As of July 15, 2020, the United States Embassy in Sarajevo is resuming certain immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services, including: IV - IR1, IR2, CR1, CR2, and NIV F, M, J (certain categories allowed by PP), E, I, O, P visas. While the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo aims to process cases as soon as practicable, there is likely to be increased wait times for completing such services due to substantial backlogs. The MRV fee is valid and may be used to schedule an interview appointment 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 immediately, please follow the guidance provided at Global Support Services (GSS) to request an emergency appointment.

Applicants for H1B, H2B, H4, L and certain J categories covered by Presidential Proclamation 10052 should request an appointment only if you have reason to believe you may qualify for one of the exceptions listed in the Proclamation here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/proclamation-suspending-entry-aliens-present-risk-u-s-labor-market-following-coronavirus-outbreak/.
