US Visa interviews set for next month


The United States Embassy in Apia has confirmed they will hold their next Visa Interviews on November 14 – 18, 2022.

The online calendar for scheduling appointments will open on November 01 at 12:00 p.m. and that interested parties should not call or email the Embassy for an appointment.

Given they may not have the capacity to accommodate all interested applicants. The US Embassy intends to hold an additional Visa Week in December.

“The visa interview does not guarantee that a visa will be approved and that each applicant must qualify for a visa on their own merits. 

“If a visa applicant has not established that he or she is eligible for a visa, the consular officer must refuse that application.  If the visa application is refused, the application fee will not be refunded.  

“All applicants should complete their application and make their appointment directly through our webpage here and not through a travel agent or other third party.  

“If you must use a travel agent or third party, please do not pay an excessive fee for the service and make sure that the agent passes you all email and other communications from the U.S. Embassy.” 

According to the notice, when booking an appointment, you must have your passport information readily available including your full name as listed on the data page, your date of birth, and the passport number.  

Students wishing to apply for student visas must also book appointments online.
