Changes Announced To Obtaining The Appointments For U.S. Visas

Immigration IssuesThe Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Panama wishes to inform applicants for non-immigrant visas to the United States that there will be reduced appointment availability in June and July 2012. We encourage all applicants with travel plans after September to schedule appointments in months after June and July. Our new appointment system allows scheduling up to six months in advance, so applicants can now secure appointments through the end of 2012. This will help us to reserve June and July appointment slots for applicants with more immediate travel plans. We recommend that all visa applicants schedule appointments approximately two-three months before their planned trips. Therefore, applicants with quinceañera plans for December or January can safely schedule appointments for September or later.

The new appointment system also allows applicants with more immediate travel plans to elect an option to inform them if earlier appointments become available after theirs are scheduled. We encourage anyone with short-term travel plans to sign up for this option when scheduling their appointments. Although we are still able to accommodate a small number of emergency appointments per day, these are generally reserved for life or death emergencies, urgent medical treatment in the United States, last-minute business travel, or students. Requests for emergency appointments must be made online following the instructions at http://www.ustraveldocs.com/pa/pa-niv-expeditedappointment.asp. (US Embassy Panama City Press Release)
