Availability of Non-Immigrant Visa Appointments in Canada Extremely Limited During Summer Months


The U.S. Department of State recently announced that due to increasingly heavy demand by Canada-based visa applicants, the seven U.S. visa processing posts in Canada are extremely limited in their ability to accept Third Country National visa appointment requests during the peak demand period of June, July, and August.  Third Country Nationals are considered to be individuals with citizenship from countries other than the U.S. and Canada.  Canadian posts are encouraging such applicants to seek appointments elsewhere in the world, such as in the applicant’s home country. Canadian posts are offering increased appointment availability for Third Country Nationals during non-peak processing times such as October and November and January through May.  Emergency cases may seek consideration for scheduling an interview at a Canada post by visiting www.canada.usembassy.gov.
