Non-Immigrant Visas


The Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our overseas passport and visa systems.  This issue is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working urgently to correct the problem and restore full operability.

 Passport applications accepted overseas or after May 26, 2015 are affected by this delay.  If you applied for a U.S. passport overseas during this time frame and have travel plans within the next 10 business days, please consider requesting an emergency passport at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate at which you originally applied.  Information about how to apply for an emergency passport is available at the following

The Embassy of the United States of America in Barbados would like applicants to make use of our appointment and document delivery service for the non-immigrant visa section.

Implemented at U.S. Embassies worldwide, this process is designed to be more convenient and user-friendly.  In addition to the online system, Call Center representatives will substantially expand available hours for applicants to obtain information by phone.

    DS-160 Application Form

    With rare exceptions, visa applicants temporarily visiting our consular district should apply at the U.S. Consular Section in their country of residence. If the applicant is not a resident of the Eastern Caribbean, interviewing officers at the U.S. Consular Section in Barbados may not have experience in evaluating the circumstances in the applicant's country of residence. The applicant will, therefore, have greater difficulty establishing eligibility for a U.S. visa when applying in Barbados than would be experienced in the applicant's home country.

    Many visitors to the Eastern Caribbean are denied visas under these circumstances. Consequently, we strongly urge visitors to this region to apply for U.S. visas in their country of residence.
