Beginning March 18, the United States Embassy in Costa Rica is reducing or cancelling nonimmigrant visa appointments with exceptions for emergencies and some H-2 visa applicants. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.
The visa application fee is valid and may be used for a visa application 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 follow the guidance provided at https://www.ustraveldocs.com/cr/cr-niv-expeditedappointment.asp to request an emergency appointment. For additional information, please go to https://www.ustraveldocs.com/cr/index.html?firstTime=No
