US cancels July-August business, tourist visa appointments

MANILA – The United States Embassy in Manila has canceled all non-immigrant B1/B2 (business/tourist) visa interview appointments scheduled through August 31, 2021 amid the challenges posed by the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

In an advisory on Friday, the Embassy said those who are affected can only reschedule “once routine visa services resume” by contacting its call center at (+632) 7792-8988 and (+632) 8548-8223, or through the online appointment system at http://cdn.ustraveldocs.com/ph.

But it reminded applicants that there is no need to contact the Embassy at this time.

“The resumption of routine visa services is on a post-by-post basis, in coordination with the Department’s framework for safely returning our workforce to Department facilities. US Embassies and Consulates have continued to provide emergency and mission-critical visa services since March and will continue to do so as they are able,” it said.

The Embassy noted that there is no fee to change an appointment and that the validity of the visa fee payment also known as the MRV fee is likewise extended until September 30, 2022. (PNA)
