The following documents are required for official/diplomatic travel to the U.S. under the following visa classifications: A-1, A-2, G-1, G-2, G-3, G-4, C-3, and NATO.
The Consular Officer will determine the appropriate visa classification.
Applicants for A, G, C-3 and NATO visas do not need to appear in person. Applications can be submitted at the Consular Section, Monday through Friday (except for Belgian and U.S. Holidays) between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. ONLY. An appointment is not required. You will be given a pick-up ticket, showing the date as of which the passport containing the visa will be ready for pick-up. Pick-up hours are shown on the pick-up ticket. Due to biometric processing, same-day issuance of visas is not possible. Visa processing and printing takes at least two to three business days. Some applicants may be subject to clearance procedures that will require additional processing time. ATTENTION: Holders of diplomatic passports must bring their diplomatic ID for admission. Do not bring any electronic devices, luggage, backpacks, or bags of any kind to the interview. You will not be allowed to enter with them and there is no place to store them.
Tourist/Business Visas for Diplomatic Passport holders (Diplomatic Type Visas): Diplomats and their dependents, as well as employees of governments or officially recognized international organizations, who want to visit the U.S. in a nonofficial capacity (e.g. as tourists or to conduct private business) who cannot travel under the Visa Waiver Program, must apply for B visas in person. No application fee is charged to bearers of diplomatic passports who qualify for “diplomatic type” visas.
