ALERT: Visa Services Suspension
March 13, 2020

On March 11, 2020, the President issued a new Presidential Proclamation titled “Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and Nonimmigrants of Certain Additional Persons Who Pose a Risk of Transmitting 2019 Novel Coronavirus.”  This proclamation suspends entry as nonimmigrants or immigrants for aliens who were physically present within the 26 countries of the Schengen Zone during the 14-day period preceding their attempted entry to the United States.

Consistent with the Proclamation, US Embassy Vienna will suspend regular visa operations until further notice.  We will continue to provide visa services for diplomatic and official visas, visas for flight crews, visas for immediate family members of U.S. citizens, and other limited categories.  A full list of the categories permitted to travel may be found in the Proclamation at https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/.  Persons with existing appointments may login to their profile on www.ustraveldocs.com and reschedule their appointment at their convenience.
