Routine Visa Services Notice
May 25, 2022

The United States Embassy in Nicaragua has resumed all routine visa services at this time. However, due to demand, the wait time for an appointment may be significant. If you have travel plans please begin the process to apply for your visa as soon as possible.

If you have a family or medical emergency and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at our website to request an expedited appointment. You should also review the requirements for our interview waiver program available for nonimmigrant applicants.  

Please also carefully review our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for the latest information about travel to the United States and visa services in Nicaragua. Please review the Department of State website for information about detailed travel regulations.  

The Consular Section reminds visa applicants to schedule their own appointments using ustraveldocs.com and consult the U.S. Embassy website for information in order to avoid becoming a victim of fraud.
