US Embassy visa renewal

Published:Friday | April 25, 2008

The United States Embassy in Kingston is to resume its Walk-in Visa Reissuance service on a Monday for persons already holding a B1/B2 multiple-entry visitor\'s visa.



The Embassy said no appointments will be needed for this service and all other visa application appointments will be held as scheduled.



Applicants are being asked to arrive at the Embassy no earlier than 11 am on any Monday morning except on embassy holidays.



The embassy says no applicants will be admitted after 1.30 pm.



Non-immigrant visa chief at the embassy, Shirley Wilson said the service was resumed in an effort to cut down on the waiting time for applicants.



To qualify for Walk-in Visa Reissuance, the applicant\'s current multiple-entry visa must have been initially valid for five years or more, and it must be expiring within the next 12 months, or have expired within the past 12 months.



The Embassy says applicants under the age of 14 or 80 and older are not required to appear in person for Visa Reissuance.



Applicants must also pay the US$131 application fee and organise their documents based on the instructions on the embassy’s website at kingston.usembassy.gov



The embassy is promising to return applicant’s processed passports through Airpak - the embassy’s delivery contractor within nine to ten business days.
