The U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Germany operate under safety measures as outlined by the Government of Germany. We are currently offering as many appointments as local conditions, resources, and safety considerations allow.
We encourage the submission of visa applications by mail for German citizens or permanent residents of Germany who do not require an interview or fingerprints. If qualified, this process takes only a few weeks from start to finish. See information on applying by mail here: https://ustraveldocs.com/de/de-niv-visarenew.asp
