Scheduling an Interview
Visa interviews are by appointment on a Tuesday morning. Additional appointments for students and exchange visitors are available on Monday afternoon until July 28th, 2014.
The Consular Section will not provide any regular visa services between August 15th and September 3rd, 2014. In case of an emergency situation, please e-mail Luxembourgconsular@state.gov .
Scheduling an interview:
An online appointment system will replace the current appointment scheduling via the call center starting August 1, 2014. Applicants can still schedule an appointment for August by calling the number below. Appointments for September and later can only be scheduled online on this website starting August 1, 2014.
Please call the toll number 900-77-870, available from 8am to 5pm, Monday - Friday. This number only works from inside Luxembourg (including cell phone) and the cost of the call is 0.70 Euro per minute. You will be asked to choose either French or English, then hear a brief introduction before being transferred to a live operator.
You will need to give the name, passport number and phone number of each person wishing to have the appointment. Minor children under 14 do not have to submit fingerprints at the Embassy and do not have to be present.
The Consular Section at the U.S. Embassy does not schedule any visa appointments and does not provide general visa information. If you call the Embassy directly, you will be referred to the call center.
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 a confirmation page of the DS-160, correct photograph and/or current visa fee in cash, will 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.
While the majority of these articles are obvious security risks, they also include some commonplace items.
