6 December, 2019

The U.S. Embassy in Paris continues to process regularly scheduled visa appointments during the strikes in Paris.  Applicants who have appointments scheduled may come to the Embassy for their interviews as planned.   However, it is also possible to reschedule appointments for a later date through your account on www.usvisa-info.com.  While we are processing applications as quickly as possible, please be advised that passport delivery delays are likely.  We encourage applicants to request the In Person Pickup delivery option for optimum processing time.  Finally, please factor increased travel time and increased time at the Embassy on your appointment date while the strikes are ongoing.  If you miss your appointment for any reason, you may request a new appointment as from the next day following your appointment day on your account on www.usvisa-info.com.

Thank you
