Expedited Visa Appointments
 

Due to the large demand for visa interviews we sometimes experience, we cannot accommodate all early appointment requests. We will attempt to accommodate requests for early interviews. Expedited appointments for U.S. nonimmigrant visa interviews must be reserved for urgent educational, humanitarian and medical travel to the United States and not for the convenience of travelers.

To make a request for an expedited visa appointment, please email the Consular Section at consularbamako@state.gov.

Your email should include the following information:

  1. Full name of the Visa Applicant
  2. Date of Birth of the Visa Applicant
  3. Passport Number of the Visa Applicant
  4. Contact Number
  5. Current Interview Date
  6. Reason for expedited interview

If your early appointment request has been approved, you may receive a response from the Consular Section within three business days. If you have not heard from us within that period, you may assume the request was not approved.

Early appointments will be given to applicants where legitimate travel needs are warranted. If a request for an early appointment does not meet the above-mentioned criteria, the appointment shall not be granted. 

Requests for earlier appointment for a second interview soon after a recent nonimmigrant visa refusal are generally not granted.
