Information for visa applicants regarding novel coronavirus: At the present time, the United States Embassy in Kathmandu is closed for routine visa services. The Embassy is only able to process emergency cases and a limited number of visa cases that do not require an interview. Additionally, we have been able to process a limited number of immigrant visa cases considered mission critical for spouses and children of U.S. citizens (Immediate Relative (IR) and Conditional (CR) cases). We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible, but we are unable to provide a specific date at this time. For nonimmigrant visa applicants, the Machine Readable Visa (MRV) fee is valid and may be used for a visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request an emergency appointment.
