Visa Services

The consular agency does not provide any visa services. If you wish to apply for a visa, you must apply in Suva.

If you are applying for the same visa type that you have previously been approved for, you may qualify for an exemption to the interview requirement.

To see if you qualify, please complete the checklist below:

  • I am applying for the same type of visa within 12 months of the expiration of my previous visa.
  • My last visa was issued after January 1, 2008.
  • I am a citizen or resident of Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, Nauru, New Caledonia, French Polynesia, or Wallis & Futuna.
  • My previous visa was approved at the time of the interview without any correspondence from the embassy or consulate indicating that my application required further administrative processing.

If you checked all of the above questions, you may be exempt from appearing in person for a visa interview.

In addition, the following requirements must be met:

  •  My previous visa was not lost, stolen, or revoked.
  • I have not changed my name or nationality since the issuance of my last U.S. visa.
  • I have not been previously refused a visa or entry into the United States.
  • My previous visa did not require a waiver of ineligibility (For example: criminal convictions).
  • I have had no arrests or convictions (other than minor traffic violations) that have occurred since my previous visa was issued.
  • I have no ineligibilities or reason to believe that I have failed to comply with U.S. immigration law.

If after reading the above information you do not qualify for an interview exemption, to schedule an appointment and appear in person for a non-immigrant visa interview at U.S. Embassy Suva.

Important Notice – If you do not meet the criteria and have submitted an application by mail and/or do not follow the procedure as set out, your Visa application will be delayed and you will be required to appear at the U.S. Embassy for an interview.
