The United States has updated its visa policies to increase security for our citizens and visitors. It will likely take you longer to get a visa than it used to, and you will find that a few new security measures have been put into place. Please visit the State Department for complete information on visa policies, how to get a visa, visa news, or to locate a consular office. For details that may apply specifically to your country, visit
