While travel to the USA is now back to normal levels, there are still significant delays in geting visa interviews in some countries.

  • All international travellers will need to prove they are fully vaccinated before boarding a flight (for UK this will mean at least 2 weeks past your second vaccination).
  • They will also require a negative Covid-19 test within 24 hours of departure for the USA
  • Embassies in London, Belfast and Dublin are for visa processing, but there are significant delays and new processes.
  • Embassies may request you send in your legal documents before being able to apply for a visa interview. If you are directed to do this, please follow their instructions carefully and do this as soon as possible! This is as a result of significant staff issues with international courier firms as well as Royal Mail for domestic UK deliveries
