How to Schedule an Appointment
NOTE: U.S. visa processing posts in Saudi Arabia no longer accept family passports. Every individual applying for a U.S. visa must have his/her own passport.
All visa applicants between 14 and 79 years old must appear in person for an interview and require an appointment.
All visa appointments for nonimmigrant visas are made online at the VisaPoint website.
Please note that if the VisaPoint main page indicates that the next available appointment for a given location is "0 Days," that means there are currently no appointments available for that location.
Do not bring mobile phones, other electronic devices (portable computers, iPods/iPads, eReaders such as Kindles or Nooks) or large bags with you. These items are not permitted inside the Consulate General; you will not be permitted entry with these items, and bringing them may delay your entry or bar you from attending your visa interview.
Please arrive fifteen minutes before your appointment time to clear security. However, if you arrive more than fifteen minutes before your appointment, you will be asked to remain outside the entry gate. Applicants who are more than thirty minutes late for the appointment will be asked to reschedule for another day.
Applicants under 14 years old
Applicants under 14 years old do not need to appear for an interview. Parents can either bring the following documents with them to their visa interview, or FedEx the documents to the Embassy in order to apply for their child’s visa:
