Requesting an Expedited Appointment
Due to the large demand for visa interviews, we cannot accommodate all requests for expedited appointments. However, we will do our best to grant them for urgent medical treatment, death of a family member, business reasons (in limited circumstances), or for students with strict travel deadlines.
To request an Expedited Appointment, follow the steps in the Expedited Appointment section of our appointment web site.
Call Center agents cannot grant expedited appointment requests, but they can help guide applicants through the online process. Call (02) 982-5555 and (02) 902-8930 from the Philippines or (703) 520-2235 from the United States for assistance.
Please note that same-day and next-day expedited appointments are not available.
Please be aware that requests for Expedited Appointments are processed only during business hours. Requests received after hours, on weekends, or on Embassy holidays will be processed the following business day.
