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.

Important Notice ā€“ Your information in this system MUST match your DS-160 form

To schedule a consular section interview appointment using this system, you first need to complete a Nonimmigrant Visa Application (DS-160 form), which you can find at https://ceac.state.gov/genniv/. The information you enter in the DS-160 form must match your passport exactly. Once you have completed the DS-160 form, you will receive a DS-160 number. You must use the assigned DS-160 number when you schedule an interview appointment using this system. If you use a different DS-160 number, the consular section WILL NOT accept your visa application and will direct you to schedule a new appointment using the correct DS-160 number.
