Source: U.S. Embassy Paramaribo

As of August 20, 2020, the United States Embassy in Suriname is resuming certain non-immigrant visa services, including: F and M student visas, and J exchange visas (not subject to or excepted from Presidential Proclamation 10052).

While the Embassy aims to process cases as soon as practicable, there is likely to be increased wait times for completing such services due to substantial backlogs. You may request an appointment for one of these visa services by writing to [email protected]

The U.S. Embassy in Suriname remains unable to resume routine nonimmigrant visas services for other visa categories at this time, including B1/B2 visitor visas. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please write to [email protected] to request an emergency appointment.

Applicants for H1B, H2B, H4, L and certain J categories covered by Presidential Proclamation 10052 should request an emergency appointment only if you have reason to believe you may qualify for one of the exceptions listed in the Proclamation here.
