Important Changes to Visa Application Procedures

December 11, 2012

Yerevan, Armenia - On December 17, 2012, the U.S. Embassy in Armenia started to implement new visa application and appointment procedures.  The new procedures will make it quicker to apply for a U.S. non-immigrant visa.

Under the new procedures, visa applicants will receive the following services:

  • The application fee may be paid by any of the following: (1) telephone by calling our local number at +374 60 270 113 (if dialing outside of Armenia) or 0 60 270 113 (if dialing within Armenia), our U.S. number at +1-703-439-2353 or via Skype - usvisaarmenia, (2) online at http://www.usvisa-info.com, or (3) in person at any branch of the Ardshininvestbank. Applicants must pay by using cash or credit card.  Please visit http://www.usvisa-info.com starting on December 17, 2012 for more information on paying the visa application fee.
  • Visa appointments may be scheduled free of charge by telephone by calling our local number at +374 60 270 113 (if dialing outside of Armenia) or 0 60 270 113 (if dialing within Armenia) or online at http://www.usvisa-info.com.

In connection with these changes, please be informed of the following:

  • If the applicant has paid the fee at Armeconombank through December 14 but has not scheduled an appointment as of December 17, 2012, please email the U.S. Embassy at consyerevan@state.gov to schedule an interview.
  • When an applicant pays the fee, the applicant’s passport (Valid government-issued form of identification) must be presented to the bank teller.  The applicant’s passport number will be tied to the fee paid at the bank.  The same rule applies to online fee payments.

The U.S. Embassy in Yerevan, in coordination with the U.S. Embassy in Ankara and the U.S. Consulate in Dubai, will also process Iranian adjudications.
