Welcome, U.S. Nonimmigrant Visa Applicants

You are at the official nonimmigrant (temporary) visa information and appointment website for the U.S. Embassy in Barbados.

The United States Embassy in Barbados is resuming certain immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services

As of July 22, the United States Embassy in Barbados is resuming certain immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services, including: F1, J1, M1, O1, P1, C1/D and Interview Waiver and Renewal Interview Waiver categories for nonimmigrants and IR1/2/3 and CR1/2 categories for immigrants. While the Embassy aims to process cases as soon as practicable, there are 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 https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-bb/niv/information/faqs#need_earlier_appt, or 246-623-9832 or 246-6239833 to request an emergency appointment.

At this time, Post is only offering services to visa applicants who are residents in our consular district, which includes Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.

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/.
