FAQ About Visa

Q.1 How soon should I apply for my appointment?

Apply early! The wait times for appointments by post are available at the Department of State Travel site.

Although the majority of applications are processed and ready to pick up within a few business days, some applications will require administrative processing. We cannot predict in advance which applications will require administrative processing, nor do we know how long it will take. Please apply at least 6-8 weeks before you plan to travel, and do not book plane tickets or hotels until you have a visa.

Q.2 How long does my passport have to be valid in order to apply for a U. S. visa?

You must possess a passport valid for travel to the United States with a validity date at least six months beyond your intended period of stay in the United States (unless country-specific agreements provide exemptions).


Q.3 My passport is damaged or expiring soon, but I want to apply for a U.S. visa. What should I do?

Please obtain a new passport before your interview if:
  • Your passport is going to expire in less than 6 months after the time you enter the United States.
  • The film on the biographic data pages of your passport (i.e., page with your photo and back page with your parents' information) is peeling, or
  • Your passport is otherwise torn, damaged, mutilated or has been washed or laundered.

Q.4 Do I qualify for the Visa Waiver Program(VWP)?

You qualify for the Visa Waiver Program if you are a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program country, possess a machine-readable passport, are traveling for temporary business or a visit of less than 90 days, meet other program requirements, and have obtained an authorization through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).

You must be a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program-eligible country in order to use this program. Permanent residents of VWP-eligible countries do not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program unless they are also citizens of VWP-eligible countries. We recommend you visit the Visa Waiver Program website before any travel to the U.S. to determine if you are eligible for the VWP.

Q.5 What is the fee for ESTA(Electronic System for Travel Authorization) and who has to pay it?

ESTA registration is required for all travelers to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program. There is a US$14 fee for ESTA registration. The fee can be paid online using a debit card or any of the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover.

Third parties (travel agents, family members, etc.) can pay your ESTA fee for you if you do not have the correct type of credit card. If the ESTA registration is denied, the fee is only US$4.

Q.6 If I travel to the United States without ESTA, what happens?

Visa Waiver Program travelers who have not obtained approval through ESTA should expect to be denied boarding on any air carrier bound for the United States. If you are allowed to board, you can expect to encounter significant delays and possible denial of admission at the U.S. port of entry (i.e., arrival airport). ESTA registration usually only takes a few minutes to complete, authorization often arrives in seconds, and it is valid for two years, unless the traveler’s passport expires within that two-year period. In those cases, ESTA validity is limited to the passport’s validity.

Q.7 If I am a third-country national living in the India, can I apply for a nonimmigrant visa in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad or Kolkata?

Applicants are generally advised to apply in their country of nationality or residence. Any person who is legally present in India may apply for a visa in New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad or Kolkata. However, applicants should decide where to apply based on more than just convenience or delay in getting an appointment in their home district. One thing to consider, for example, is in which consular district the applicant can demonstrate the strongest ties.

There is no guarantee that a visa will be issued, nor is there a guarantee of processing time. If refused, there is no refund of the application fee.

Q.8 Do all nonimmigrant visa applicants have to come to the Embassy for an interview?

Yes, for most applicants. There are only a few exceptions to the interview requirement. The following applicants generally do not have to appear in person:
  • Applicants who are renewing their visa may be eligible for the Interview Waiver Program. Please visit the pagehttp://cdn.ustraveldocs.com/in/in-niv-visarenew.asp for more information about interview waiver eligibility.
  • Applicants for A1, A2 (official travelers on central government business), C2, C3 (central government officials in transit on central government business) or G1, G2, G3, G4 (central government officials traveling in connection with an international organization, or employees of an international organization)
  • Children under the age of 14 years of age at the date of the initial visa interview in the Embassy or Consulate if either of the parents have a valid nonimmigrant visa.
  • Applicants over 80.

Q.9 I have a nonimmigrant visa that will expire soon and I would like to renew it. Do I need to go through the whole visa application process again?

Yes, unless you are eligible to apply using the Interview Waiver Program. Please visit the pagehttp://cdn.ustraveldocs.com/in/in-niv-visarenew.asp for further information.

Q.10 My passport has expired, but the U.S. visa in it is still valid. Do I need to apply for a new visa?

No. If your visa is valid and unmarked or undamaged, you can travel with your two passports together (old and new), if the purpose of your travel matches your current nonimmigrant visa. Also, the name and other personal data must be the same in both passports (unless the name change was due to marriage), and both passports must be from the same country and of the same type (i.e., both tourist passports and both diplomatic passports).

If your name changed due to marriage, you can travel to the United States with both passports as well as your marriage certificate.

Q.11 I have accidentally damaged my U.S. visa. Do I need to reapply?

If your visa has been damaged, you will need to reapply for a new visa. If your visa was issued recently, you may not need to have a new interview. More information is available in the Renew My Visa section of our website.

Q.12 I have dual citizenship. Which passport should I use to travel to the United States?

If one of your nationalities is not U.S., you can apply using whichever nationality you prefer, but you must disclose all nationalities to the Embassy on your application form. U.S. citizens, even dual citizens/nationals, must enter and depart the United States using a U.S. passport.

Q.13 How can I extend my visa?

The validity of a visa cannot be extended regardless of its type. You will need to apply for a new visa.

Q.14 Must I submit my visa application form electronically?

Yes, you must complete the DS-160 and bring a printed copy of the the DS-160 confirmation page with you when you go for your interview at the U.S. Embassy/Consulate and at Visa Application Centre for Biometric.

Q.15 What is "administrative processing?"

Some visa applications require further administrative processing, which takes additional time after your interview with a consular officer. You are advised of this possibility when they apply. Most administrative processing is resolved within 60 days of the visa interview. This web page on the Consular Affairs website has more information about administrative processing.

Q.16 How do I read and understand my visa?

As soon as you receive your visa, check to make sure all your personal information printed on the visa is correct. If any of the information on your visa does not match the information in your passport or is otherwise incorrect, please contact the issuing authority (i.e. the U.S. Embassy) immediately.

The expiration date of your visa is the last day you may use the visa to enter the United States. It does not indicate how long you may stay in the United States. Your stay is determined by the Department of Homeland Security at your port of entry.

As long as you comply with the Department of Homeland Security decision on the conditions of your stay, you should have no problem. Further information about interpreting your visa can be found at the Department of State's Consular Affairs website.

Q.17 My visa was printed incorrectly. What do I do?

If you think your visa was printed incorrectly, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and explain why you think there is an error. If necessary, we will provide instructions on how to submit your passport.

Q.18 Why does my visa say "FNU"?

If you have only one name or if your name appears in only one line in your passport, then on the visa your full name will only be printed in the surname field and "First Name Unknown", or "FNU," will be printed in the given name field.

Q.19 My visa will expire while I am in the United States. Is there a problem with that?

No. You may stay in the U.S. for the period of time and conditions authorized by the Department of Homeland Security officer when you arrived in the U.S., which will be noted on the I-94, even if your visa expires during your stay. You can find more information here

Q.20 What will happen when I enter the U.S.

A visa does not guarantee entry into the United States, but allows a foreign citizen coming from abroad to travel to a U.S. port of entry and request permission to enter the United States. The Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials have authority to permit or deny admission to the United States, and determine how long a traveler may stay. At the port of entry, upon granting entry to the United States, the Customs and Border Protection officer will stamp the travel document of each arriving non-immigrant traveller.The admission stamp will show the date of admission,class of admission, and the date the traveller is admitted until.Travelers will also receive on arrival a flier alerting them to go to www.cbp.gov/I94 for their admission record information.This online record replaces the paper I-94 form. Visa Waiver Program travelers receive Form 1-94W. On this form , the officer records either a date or "D/S" (duration of status). If your I-94 record a specific date, then that is the date by which you must leave the united states. You can review information about admission on the CBP Website.The Department of State's Consular Affairs website has more information about duration of stay.

Q.21 I did not turn in my I-94 when I left the United States. What should I do?

On April 30, 2013, U.S. Customs and Border Protection stopped issuing paper I-94 forms in lieu of a digital record. If you received a paper I-94 form and did not surrender it upon leaving the United States, please follow the directions at https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/752/kw/i94.

If you entered the U.S. after April 30, 2013, you do not need to take any action, as your departure from the U.S. is automatically recorded.

Q.22 I have questions on submitting my DS-160 and printing the confirmation page. Where can I go for more information?

Our call center is unable to provide assistance on the application form. Any inquiries on completing the DS-160 can be addressed on the following website, http://travel.state.gov/content/visas/english/forms/ds-160--online-nonimmigrant-visa-application/frequently-asked-questions.html.

FAQ TICKETS

What is an e-ticket?

An e-ticket, also known as an electronic ticket, is an electronic document that contains the details of your flight ticket, like a unique confirmation number issued by the airline for the booking you have made. It is important to carry a print-out of the e-ticket along with a valid photo-id proof at the time of flight check-in.

Is there any kind of full or partial refund for a ticket that I will not finally use?

A ticket may have different restrictions depending on the airline and the type of ticket (class). Usually for economic fares, only airport taxes are being refunded. However, in order to confirm the exact sum that will be refunded in any case of cancellation or modification, we will need to contact the airline. You may review the terms of the airline regarding the ticket cancellation or modification fees and restrictions, using the respective link on the page where you introduce your credit card details or in the ticket confirmation e-mail.

How can I change the dates of my flight?

In order to change the dates of your flight you will need to complete the relative form and reply to any e-mail that we have already sent you or even send us a modification request by fax. In any case, no change of dates will be accepted unless we are informed in the written form via the website online form regarding the kind of change you are interested in.

With who should I contact if I need to modify my ticket while I am abroad?

If the type of the ticket allows changes on the flight of return and you are abroad, you will have to communicate with the local office of the respective airline.

What happens if the airline changes its flights?

The airlines are sometimes forced to modify the itineraries, hours and number of their flights. In this case we will try to inform you for any changes before the date of departure so that you adjust your program to these changes. These changes are usually of minor importance without significant impact on your trip. If significant changes occur related to your flight (for example change in departure time for more than 2 hours or change of departure airport) and you have no alternative that suits you then you can request compensation from the airline, according to the passenger's rights established by the European Union, unless you have been informed on time by the airline.

Can the name of passenger be changed on the ticket?

The tickets are not transferable and for this reason no change of name can be done. The name should be introduced on the reservation form exactly as it is written on the passport or the identity card. After the completion of the reservation form, no change or correction can be accepted on the name of the passenger.

Publication and collection of tickets

How will I receive my ticket?

Your ticket is electronic (e-ticket) and will be sent to you via e-mail. At the airport you will only need to go directly to the check-in counter of the airline holding your identity card or passport.

What should I do if I lose my tickets?

This means that you don' t have to show a printed ticket in order to get on the plane and you won't have to worry about fogetting or losing your ticket (since it is not the traditional paper ticket).

The hand luggage should usually weigh up to 5 kilos while the luggage presented at the counter should not be more than 20 kilos (this may vary a bit depending on the destination). The airlines are becoming more and more strict regarding the weight and size of luggage allowed. Both the weight limit and the maximum dimensions may vary depending on the flight and the category of your ticket. The terms concerning the luggage may vary considerably from company to company. If you have any kind of relative question, we recommend you to contact directly the specific airline.

May I select specific seats?

You cannot choose your seat before the hand luggage control.

How much time prior to the flight departure should I be at the airport?

If you travel abroad you should better be at the airport 2 hours before your departure time, while as far as domestic flights are concerned, 1 hour is enough. Please keep in mind that you will need enough time until you pass the security controls especially during peak periods.

What kind of documents should I carry when I travel?

If you are a Schengen Zone citizen and you travel within Schengen Zone you just have to hold your identity card (your name should be written with latin letters). While your id is enough for you to travel, passports are more common to use while travelling. If you travel outside Schengen Zone, you necessarily need your passport, while your ticket of return and visa may be essential also. We recommend you to consult the embassy of the country that you will visit, in order to be sure of which are the essential travel documents that you will need. Even if our travel consultant may inform you regarding the need of Visa issuing for a certain country, such reminder is not an obligation of ours.

What kind of documents do the children need?

Children need their own passports and visa just like adults. If they travel alone, the airline needs to be informed respectively. Please keep in mind that not all the airlines accept unaccompanied children on their flights. Children that travel inside Greece and do not have a passport or identity card, they should be carrying a birth certificate.

Are there any specific requirements when booking tickets for a U.S. destination?

Yes. These requirements are due to the Secure Flight Program and relevant to the passenger information entry for the flight booking.
