Nonimmigrant Visas

Update April 8, 2021:  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Embassy in Stockholm remains unable to resume routine visa operations.  We are currently offering as many appointments as resources and safety allow. Due to the need to prioritize services for U.S. citizens, and reductions in our waiting room capacity, the Embassy has a reduced capacity to process nonimmigrant visas.  We do not currently envision being able to offer any routine nonimmigrant visa appointments, including for petition​-based employment visas,  student visas, exchange visitor visas, or business/tourist visas.

In the meantime, 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.
