Consular Section

The Visa Section is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The Visa Section is closed on all U.S. and Bahamian Holidays. Persons wishing to obtain a visa interview must first contact the Visa Information Service. (See “How to Apply”).

Applicants should be advised that capacity constraints may require a daily numerical limit on visa applications during the peak summer application period (May – August). Interested persons are therefore strongly encouraged to apply for visas during other times of the year to avoid possible inconvenience.
