Welcome, U.S. Nonimmigrant Visa Applicants

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

The United States Embassy and Consulate in Ecuador resumed limited nonimmigrant visa services

As of August 3, 2020, the United States Embassy and Consulate in Ecuador resumed limited nonimmigrant visa services, including visa renewals that qualify under the Interview Waiver Program. While we aim 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-ec/niv/information/faqs#need_earlier_appt to request an emergency appointment. If you require further assistance please refer to our "Help" section at the bottom of the page.

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/.
