Important Third-Country National Visa Update

Posted By: Mara Therese Ohorodnik    Published: Wednesday, 09 Jul 2014

United States: Third-Country National Visa Appointments Unavailable at U.S. Posts in Canada This Summer- As it was previously reported, the Department of State has confirmed that third-country national (TCN) processing will not be available at any U.S. consular posts in Canada from June through August 2014, except in emergency situations. TCN applicants with appointments already scheduled at a post in Canada during these months will not be affected.

The suspension will primarily affect any person who is not a citizen or permanent resident alien of the U.S. who seeks to renew a visa in Canada rather than travel to their home country. Appointments are expected to be available to non-citizens who hold a permanent visa for Canada, however. Those who are not a citizen or permanent resisdent alien of the U.S. who were planning to apply for a visa in Canada instead of their home country this summer should contact immigration services, such as a Fragomen professional, to discuss alternative optinos.

For more information you can visit the U.S. Department of State and the Embassy of the U.S.
