Non-Immigrant Visas

General Information

Welcome to the homepage of the Non-Immigrant Visa Unit at U.S. Embassy Yerevan. The resources available on this site should answer most questions you may have about the visa application process. We recommend that potential applicants carefully review all of the links under “Non-Immigrant Visas” in the menu to the left, as well as our appointment scheduling and fee information site (also available in Armenian and Farsi).

Citizens of Iran should note that U.S. Embassy Yerevan has Farsi-speaking consular officers who can provide an interview in Farsi.

For contact information, please click here.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Applicants for E2 investor visas must send their application and supporting documents to the consular section in advance via DHL, UPS, FedEx, or local mail so that they are received at least one week in advance of your interview. Failure to do so could cause delays in processing your case. Click here for our mailing address.

Interview Waiver Program

Embassy Yerevan is pleased to announce that non-immigrant visa applicants below the age of 10, over the age of 79, and certain applicants who are renewing their visas may qualify for a waiver of their in-person consular interview.

Click here for information on age-based interview waivers and here for information on renewals.

Applicants who have previously been refused a visa in the same visa class for which they are applying (and have not had that refusal overcome) are not eligible.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Qualifying for an interview waiver is not the same as qualifying for a visa. Applicants who qualify for an interview waiver but are not clearly approvable by the consular officer under all laws pertaining to the visa type – including the presumption of immigrant intent that applies to most non-immigrant visas – will be required to appear for an interview.
