US Embassy resumes routine tourist and business visa services


The Consular Section of the United States Embassy in Barbados will resume routine tourist and business visa services in the B1/B2 visa category beginning Monday, Nov. 16, with the next available open appointments beginning on Tuesday, Dec. 1.

Persons are asked to note that applicants residing outside of Barbados who wish to schedule in-person interviews, must strictly adhere to all Immigration and Ministry of Health Barbados protocols.

A visa appointment at the United States Embassy does not allow for breakage of required quarantine or isolation.

All applicants must wear a facial covering while inside the embassy and adhere to posted health safety and social distancing protocols, including the application of hand sanitizers.

In addition, any applicant experiencing flu-like symptoms, including fever, should not appear for his/her scheduled interview.

US entry bans from designated COVID-19 global hotspots remain in effect. Therefore, the overwhelming majority of travellers from the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Schengen zone of the European Union, Brazil, China, and Iran, (even with valid non-immigrant visas) will not be permitted to enter the United States if he or she has been to one of the listed geographic zones within 14 days.

Please also note that the US Embassy Consular Section in Barbados continues to process student visas.

  1. And all the Antiguans who cuss trump are going to run to get visas to have their bastard Antiguan children in America

    • Before issuing visas to Antiguans and women from other countries.

      All of this citizenship fraud is ridiculous

  2. I hope Antiguans have been reading between the lines. By the first few months of 2021, even if you have a negative covid test, you will be required to get the vaccine if you want to enter the US jurisdiction.

    You have a choice to make, either get the vaccine and be allowed to travel internationally, or refuse and stay in your country.

    Choose wisely!

  3. Now that Trump is on the way out, one wonders how many changes there will soon be in regard to all things immigration, visas, etc. Political appointees will be sent home and new people will be at the helm, probably in every Embassy, too.
