Important Notice

Beginning Thursday, July 11, the U.S. Embassy in Madrid is introducing a new process for scheduling nonimmigrant visa (NIV) appointments that is faster and easier. These improvements will not result in additional costs. However, visa applicants should take note of new contact telephone numbers and website for scheduling visas. According to Counselor for Consular Affairs Kathleen M. Hennessey, “The implementation of this new system is part of our efforts to continually improve our services for our visa applicants.”
