Presidential Proclamation on Immigration; Visa Interview Appointments Cancellation

NOTE: We know a lot of our fellow Americans in Sweden have non-American family, friends, and acquaintances.  Therefore, we’re providing the following visa-related updates for your awareness:

1)  On April 23, the White House announced a new Presidential Proclamation entitled: “Suspending Entry of Immigrants Who Present Risk to the U.S. Labor Market During the Economic Recovery Following the COVID-19 Outbreak.”  For details click see the White House website.

2)  Due to the existing travel restrictions, all routine visa interview appointments at the U.S. Embassy in Stockholm scheduled for the month of May has been canceled.  Visa applicants affected by the cancelation should have already been notified via email and SMS text.  While June appointments remain available, at this time we cannot guarantee whether or not these appointments will also be canceled.  For more information about non-immigrant visas, please contact to the Visa Call Center.  For immigrant visa questions, please contact us at: STKivinfo@state.gov.
