Now that nearly all the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and flexibilities have been eliminated, is it still possible to apply for a visa at a U.S. consulate that is not in your home country?


Many, if not most U.S. consular posts accept third-country national visa applicants. Some, however, do significantly limit which third-country nationals qualify. If a consular post has any restrictions on visa applications by third-country nationals, this information typically can be found on the consulate’s website. (24.May.2023)
