New COVID19 Vaccine Requirement for entry into the United States effective November 8, 2021

On October 25, the President issued a Presidential Proclamation (P.P.) titled “A Proclamation on Advancing the Safe Resumption of Global Travel During the COVID-19 Pandemic” which revokes P.P.s 9984, 9992, 10143, and 10199 which suspended entry into the United States of noncitizens who had been physically present in China, Iran, the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Brazil, South Africa, or India in the 14-day period prior to their entry or attempted entry into the United States and replaces these regional restrictions with a global vaccination requirement for adult noncitizen nonimmigrants traveling to the United States by air. This Presidential Proclamation and accompanying updated test-to-travel requirements are effective on November 8 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.

To read more about the Presidential Proclamation and possible exemptions, please refer to:

Travelers without valid visas

Please use the visa wizard to determine which type of travel authorization is appropriate for your purpose of travel. 

You may be eligible to travel to the U.S. with an ESTA instead of a visa if you meet requirements for visa-free travel under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) administered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Application process for non-immigrant visas

Applicants must book an appointment for a visa interview online as explained in Application process for non-immigrant visas. Please book only one slot when applying as a family. Children under 14 years of age do not have to be present.

The U.S. Embassy in Luxembourg can only provide timely nonimmigrant visa appointments to citizens and residents of Luxembourg, as well as those individuals who live in neighboring countries and commute to Luxembourg for work. Appointments for non-residents are available; however, wait-times are likely to be several months long.

It is possible that a date for a visa interview is not immediately available. Please prepare your DS-160 and check the online agenda on our website regularly. New slots can become available any time. Should you have an urgent need to travel, please refer to Obtaining an expedited appointment (we cannot accommodate requests for an expedited appointment from non-residents).

Visa appointments for non-residents are available only on the last Thursday of each month and must be booked online on our website.

The next dates* will be:

May 19th, 2022 (May 26th is a holiday)

June 30th, 2022

July 28th, 2022

(*these dates may not be immediately available. Please check the online agenda on our website regularly).

Appointments booked by non-residents on any other date will be cancelled.

Please note that, while we make every effort to honor the appointments we offer, interviews may be cancelled or postponed at the last minute, due to unexpected circumstances.

DISCLAIMER: Admission to the United States remains subject to a determination by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers upon arrival at a U.S. Port of Entry. A valid visa or ESTA is not a guarantee of admission.

What is a Visa?

A citizen of a foreign country who seeks to enter the United States generally must first obtain a U.S. visa, which is placed in the traveler’s passport, a travel document issued by the traveler’s country of citizenship or nationality.

Certain international travelers may be eligible to travel to the United States without a visa if they meet the requirements for visa-free travel under the Visa Waiver Program.  The Visa section of this website is all about U.S. visas for foreign citizens to travel to the United States.  If you cannot find what you are looking for here, please visit Travel.State.gov for additional information.

Note: U.S. citizens do not need a U.S. visa for travel to the United States, but when planning travel abroad a U.S. citizen may need a visa issued by the embassy or consulate of the country they wish to visit.

Do You Already Know What Type of Visa You Need?

For nonimmigrant visas, you can go directly to the online application for the DS-160; or for immigrant visas, directly to the USCIS site for the relevant forms.  If you are unsure, please use the Visa Wizard below to help you determine your visa type.
