EMERGENCY APPOINTMENTS

If an emergency has arisen and you need to reschedule your visa interview appointment, you may e-mail consktm@state.gov.  If you wish to request an expedited appointment, please explain the reason you are requesting an earlier appointment.  Only emergency cases, as determined by the Consular Section, will receive an earlier appointment date.  We urge you not to e-mail your supporting documents.  Please bring your additional documents at the time of interview.

Medical Treatment or Illness/Death of a Family Member

Applicants who need to travel to the United States for emergency medical treatment or the sudden illness or death of a family member may be eligible for an expedited interview appointment.  Applicants should complete the Online Non-immigrant Visa Electronic Application form (DS-160).  After getting an appointment date form Nabil bank, e-mail consktm@state.gov with the receipt number given by the bank and request an expedited appointment.  Please include a letter from a physician explaining the medical circumstances.  The Embassy reserves the right to determine what constitutes an emergency.  If the expedited appointment request is approved or not, you will get reply via e-mail.

To report instances of fake documents or fraudulent visa applications, please e-mail fraudktm@state.gov.
