Group Processing for Companies, Travel Agencies and Other Organizations


Groups of 10 or more applicants traveling together may qualify for a special "Group Processor" access which will allow them to access information and schedule appointments together through this Web site. Groups must be people traveling with the same itinerary , such as significant professional, cultural, political, journalistic, sporting, business or economic interests.

If you do not meet the criteria for "Group Processor" access, you can create an account and schedule through the normal “nonimmigrant visa” process.

If you think you might qualify for "Group Processor" access, a group representative will need to follow the steps below:

  1. Create an account
  2. Click on the "Actions" link at the top right
  3. Select "Account settings" and click on the "Request Pre-approval To Be a Group Processor"
  4. Complete the request form and "submit"
  5. Your request will be reviewed by the Consular Section and you will receive an email with the decision.

If you have received “Group Processor” access and require assistance with website technical issues, MRV fee payments, or your login information (email and password) send an email to:

Note: Iranian nationals are not eligible to schedule under the group process. Iranian nationals can create an account and use the standard appointment scheduling process, which allows up to 10 family members to schedule and pay together.
