Delhi US Embassy to handle Nepal visa services

By Super

New Delhi, Apr 24: The United States has temporarily suspended visa services at its embassy in Kathmandu following pro-democracy agitation in Nepal but its Mission in New Delhi will process visa applications from citizens of the restive Himalayan kingdom.

However, the applicant must have an appointment letter from the US embassy in New Delhi.

A statement issued by the US embassy in New Delhi said applicants for nonimmigrant (NIV), immigrant (IV), and diversity (DV) visa interviews by citizens and residents of Nepal may contact the embassy via email at nepalivisas@state.gov to request an appointment in New Delhi.

Due to the already high demand for non-immigrant or temporary visa appointments by residents in New Delhi's district, most visa applicants must wait up to four months for an appointment.

However, priority appointments available within three weeks may be given to applicants who need to travel to the US on an urgent basis.

Priority appointments are reserved for those who have to travel for the following purposes: --Obtaining emergency medical care or accompanying a relative or employer for emergency medical care, --Attending the funeral of an immediate family member (mother, father, brother, sister, child, grandparent or grandchild), --Attending to an urgent business matter where the travel requirement could not be predicted in advance, --Students or exchange visitors who are within 30 days of their start date of a valid programme and who have not been refused a visa within the last six months, --H and L visa renewals for applicants who are already working in the US and are returning to their jobs.

After the US Embassy in Kathmandu resumes visa services, all appointments for residents of Nepal that are pending at the US Embassy in New Delhi, will be automatically cancelled.
