Notice: Embassy Beirut Visa Processing Services Suspended

Because we are exclusively providing U.S. citizen services at this time, the U.S. Embassy in Beirut has suspended all visa processing.  Should you need a nonimmigrant visa, you may apply at another U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad.

Should you wish to request transfer of your immigrant visa case to another U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad, please contact the embassy or consulate where you desire to have your case processed.

Travelers may schedule appointments for the full range of visa categories online.
The U.S. Department of State has increased certain nonimmigrant visa (NIV) application processing fees effective June 17, 2023. See U.S. Travel Docs for more information.
