Nonimmigrant Visas

Important Notice
In response to significant worldwide challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of State has temporarily suspended routine visa services at all U.S. embassies and consulates, including at the U.S. Embassy in Madrid. Further, Presidential Proclamation 9993 suspends the entry to the United States of all foreign nationals who were physically present within the Schengen Area, including Spain, during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry. The President issued a separate Proclamation Suspending Entry of Immigrants Who Present Risk to the U.S. Labor Market on April 22, 2020. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible, but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. The MRV fee is valid and may be used for a visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided at the Visa Information Service website or contact us by phone at +34-91-123-8866.

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Madrid is responsible for providing visa services to those seeking to enter the United States for a temporary period and for those wishing to take up indefinite or permanent residence in the United States.

Most visitors to the United States enter the country on a tourist or business visitor visa (B1/B2 visas), but there are visa categories corresponding to every purpose of travel, including students (F1) and temporary foreign workers (H1B).

Please visit our Global Support Services (GSS) website for complete information on applying for a nonimmigrant U.S. visa, including a directory of nonimmigrant visa categories.
