As of March 13, 2020, the United States Embassy in La Paz is cancelling routine Nonimmigrant and Immigrant visa appointments. At this time your visa appointment is cancelled. The U.S. Embassy is not accepting renewal applications by mail until further notice. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.
