Nonimmigrant Visas

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.
