Update on Immigrant Visa Appointment Scheduling
Due to the Government of Peru's announcement of a planned general quarantine for the Lima Metropolitan area beginning January 31, 2021, the U.S. Embassy in Lima is rescheduling all immigrant visa appointments scheduled for February 1 - February 12, 2021. Applicants whose appointments are affected will receive an automatic email from the U.S. Visa Appointment Service confirming their new appointment date and time.
The U.S. Embassy in Lima is only accepting emergency appointments at this time. To request an emergency appointment, create an account via the U.S. Visa Appointment website (https://ais.usvisa-info.com/en-pe/iv) to review any future appointment availability and to schedule an appointment. Once scheduled, applicants can submit an expedite request for emergency appointment consideration. Appointment availability beyond February 14 will be subject to local quarantine regulations.
Presidential Proclamation 10014 of April 22, 2020 (extended through March 31, 2021) suspended the issuance and entry of certain immigrant visa categories, including most employment-based immigrant visas. U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and those holding valid immigrant visas on the effective date of the Proclamation, are not subject to the proclamation. No valid visas will be revoked under this Proclamation. Monitor U.S. Visas News (state.gov) for updated information.
The U.S. Embassy in Lima appreciates your patience and flexibility with these scheduling changes.
