Welcome, U.S. Immigrant Visa Applicants

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

The United States Embassy in Belize has resumed certain immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services

As of July 27 the United States Embassy in Belize has resumed certain immigrant and nonimmigrant visa services, including: F1, J1, M1, 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 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 https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-bz/niv/information/faqs#need_earlier_appt or contact by email at acari_contactus+bz+info+en@visaops.net to request an emergency appointment.
