Check the Status of a Visa Application
To check the status of your U.S. visa application:
- United States: Use the online visa status check tool for immigrant or non-immigrant visas.
- Abroad: Contact the U.S. Embassy or consulate where you filed your application.
U.S. consular officers have decision-making authority regarding nonimmigrant visa applications. If the consular officer denies your application, ask them to explain why. While you are not eligible to reapply for a visa if the officer denies your application, you can apply for a waiver instead.
