04.01.2021 | US Consulate - Lockdown - Fees - Emergency Appt.

The U.S. Mission to Germany understands that many visa applicants have paid the visa application processing fee and are still waiting to schedule a visa appointment. We are working diligently to restore all routine visa operations as quickly and safely as possible. In the meantime, rest assured that the U.S. Mission will extend the validity of your payment (known as the MRV fee) until September 30, 2022, to allow all applicants who were unable to schedule a visa appointment as a result of the suspension of routine consular operations an opportunity to schedule and/or attend a visa appointment with the already paid fee. Please continue to monitor this site for information on when we will return to routine visa operations.

As of December 16, 2020, the United States Embassy in Berlin and Consulates General Frankfurt and Munich have ceased all non-emergency visa services, including F, M, and J visas, due to recently re-imposed COVID-19 restrictions. Unfortunately, an imminent start date for F and J students is not, at this time, considered an emergency. While the Embassy and Consulates aim to process cases as soon as practicable, there is likely to be increased wait times for completing such services due to substantial backlogs. The MRV fee is valid and may be used to schedule an interview appointment in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please email the consular section in your area (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., This email address is being protected from spambots.
