The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo provides immigrant (IV) and nonimmigrant (NIV) visa services to Dominicans and other residents and travelers in the Dominican Republic.

Please use the links on the left to read general information about visa services. 

For visa interviews after January 1, 2015, nearly all visa applicants will need to make appointments at both the Visa Application Center (VAC) and the U.S. Embassy.  Applicants should visit our online visa appointment system at well in advance of their desired travel date.  At the VAC, visa applicants will submit their application, take a photo, and provide fingerprints. Applicants will later visit the U.S. Embassy for an interview with the consular officer.

The Visa Application Center (VAC) is located at:

Galería 360 Shopping Center, 1st Floor
Av. John F. Kennedy
Santo Domingo

The United States Embassy is located at:

Av. República de Colombia #57
Santo Domingo

Visit to schedule a VAC and Embassy appointment.  If you have questions about the visa process or about a pending application, please write to or call (829) 956-6144 from the Dominican Republic or (703) 988-3410 from the United States.
