How To Apply for a Non-Immigrant Visa

Applicants ready to apply for a nonimmigrant visa must complete the following steps:

STEP 1: Complete the Nonimmigrant Visa Electronic Application form DS-160 and print out the confirmation page.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please complete ALL information requested on the DS-160 application form. Married women must enter their maiden names in respond to the question regarding aliases or previous names. Questions regarding MONTHLY INCOME, EMAIL ADDRESS, MOTHER’S/FATHER’S SURNAME AND GIVEN NAME, MOTHER’S/FATHER’S DATE OF BIRTH etc. must be answered.

The U.S. Embassy recommends that EACH ADULT APPLICANT fill out the DS-160 personally.  If your application will be filled out by a coworker, friend, agency, or other person, that person must directly ask you each of the requested items, including the security related background questions. The applicant is ALWAYS ultimately responsible for the accurate, truthful responses to each section of the DS-160.

Applicants with incomplete information or incorrect information may be required to correct their application or even be required to resubmit a new form, which will delay your visa issuance.

STEP 2: Visit usvisa-info.com (Create an account, Pay Visa Fee, Schedule Appointment, & arrange for the return of your passport)

- Complete visa information, MRV (visa fee) payment and appointment scheduling are available via three methods:

  •  Online at the new Web-site: http://usvisa-info.com 
  •  Via telephone number (+389) 2 317 1042 in Macedonia or (703)439-2346 in the U.S.  
  • On Skype at usvisamacedonia

 - The MRV fee (visa application fee) may be paid online or over the telephone, with a MasterCard or Visa credit card.  It may also be paid in person in Macedonia at any Komercijalna Banka location using Denars or in Kosovo at any Raiffeisen Bank, using Euros.  Applicants who wish to pay  at a bank must first log on to http://usvisa-info.com to print a deposit slip. 

 - More convenient visa delivery: Applicants from Macedonia will now be able to pick up their visas at various locations throughout Macedonia. There is no additional charge for this service.  Applicants from Kosovo will still pick up their visas at the U.S. Embassy.
