Beginning January 6, 2013, the U.S. Embassy in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has transitioned to a new appointment service for individuals applying for a non-immigrant visa. This service appears to be part of the eventual global rollout of the program, which is now being implemented at several select consulates. Visa applicants will be able to complete the form DS-160, schedule an interview, pay the visa application fee, and arrange for the return of their passports through a single interface available on the service’s website or by phone. Previously, a visa applicant was required to complete and coordinate each step of the process independently, without a single point of reference or interface to facilitate the various steps in the process. Applicants can now coordinate and track the progression of the required visa application steps from within the service’s interface.
