U.S. Embassy temporarily suspends nonimmigrant visa appointments

In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the United States is suspending nonimmigrant visa appointments in many countries around the world.  As a result, as of March 17, 2020, the United States Embassy in Kyrgyzstan is temporarily suspending routine nonimmigrant visa appointments.  This action does not apply to diplomatic/official visa applications or to immigrant visa applications.  We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.  If you had a nonimmigrant visa appointment scheduled March 17, 2020 and later, your visa appointment is cancelled.  Do not attend your previously scheduled appointment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel to the United States immediately, please contact us via consularbishkek@state.gov to request an emergency appointment.

Please note there are travel restrictions for certain countries. Please visit https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/ea/covid-19-information.html and read the section “Presidential Proclamations Regarding Novel Coronavirus” for more information.
