Scheduling an Interview

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Luxembourg only accepts non-immigrant visa (NIV) applications from persons resident or employed in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and Luxembourg citizens regardless of their current place of residence. 

Visa appointments at the U.S. Embassy in Luxembourg are usually on Tuesdays 8:15-11am. Applicants must first complete a visa application form DS-160 and use the barcode to schedule an appointment online:  



Important notice for students and exchange visitors:

Please e-mail for an appointment (students and exchange visitors only). Appointments for other types of visas must be scheduled online and will not be accepted on Wednesdays.

The Consular Section at the U.S. Embassy does not schedule any visa appointments via phone or e-mail except for students/exchange vistors and in emergency circumstances. If you call the Embassy directly for an appointment, you will be referred to the website.

The Consular Section will not provide a list of required documentation for your visa interview. Applicants should use the wizard on the Department of State website, which will guide them through the application process, and then check Luxembourg specific information.

Visa applicants should check all necessary documentation prior to their appointment at the Embassy. Documentation may vary depending on the visa category and purpose of travel to the US. Applicants who cannot provide the confirmation page of the DS-160, correct photograph, required visa fee in cash or a stamped envelope, may not be accepted for an interview and will have to schedule a new appointment.


For security reasons only a limited number of people are allowed in the Consular lobby at a time. This can result in having to wait outside even in inclement weather.

To facilitate and speed up your entry into the Embassy we recommend you bring no baggage at all, except your passport, the application fee in cash, and supporting documents. Once you enter the screening area, you should be prepared to remove from your person all metallic items and put them in a box for screening, together with your handbag /briefcase, etc.

The following items are PROHIBITED and cannot be brought on to the premises. Persons carrying any of the items mentioned below will be denied entry to Embassy/Consulate facilities as long as the items are in their possession and will be asked to dispose of them. We suggest therefore that all such items be left either at home, in a locked car, or with a friend or relative who remains outside the premises.
