U.S. visa application services will be provided to visa applicants by our authorized partner.
All visa interviews at the U.S. Embassy in Kingston are handled on an appointment basis only. Individuals seeking general information about U.S. visas or needing to schedule a visa appoint should visit the visa application website.
The processing time of the visa application and the printing of an approved U.S. visa vary in duration for each individual applicant. After attending the U.S. Consular Section interview, you may track the status of your visa application through the Consular Electronic Application Center.
All visitors to the Consular section, including all visa applicants and U.S. citizens, must enter the facilities via a dedicated consular entrance on Old Hope Road.
All visitors to the Embassy are required to undergo a security check. Electronic items, including cell phones, cameras, beepers, and pagers, are prohibited on the Embassy compound and should be secured elsewhere before entering the Embassy. The Embassy reserves the right to limit the entry of possessions and does not have the means to store these items.
If you need reasonable accommodation for your appointment, we encourage you to request your accommodation immediately once you schedule your appointment. We make every effort to provide accommodations to persons with disabilities and medical conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary, depending on the situation and the person’s needs.
Examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to:
If you are unable to provide fingerprints because of a medical condition, including birth defects, physical deformities, skin conditions, you may qualify for a fingerprint waiver for certain fingers.
The waiting room of the Consular Section and its restroom is wheelchair-accessible.
