MANILA, Philippines – The United States Embassy in the Philippines on Thursday announced it has canceled all immigrant and nonimmigrant visa interviews scheduled through July 3 due to the community quarantine measures being implemented to curb the spread of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country.
“We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. We appreciate your patience and understanding,” the embassy said in a Facebook post.
The embassy said that after the community quarantine is lifted in Metro Manila, all affected applicants should reschedule their visa interviews through the Embassy call center by phone at +63 (2) 7792-8988 or +63 (2) 8548-8223, or through the online appointment system at ustraveldocs.com/ph.
“There is no fee to change an appointment and visa application fees are valid for one year in the country where the fee was paid,” it assured.
