Visa Services in Tripoli Suspended

 The U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya, has suspended all visa services until further notice. If you have an appointment for a nonimmigrant visa or to file an I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, we will contact you to reschedule when visa operations resume. You may apply for a U.S. nonimmigrant visa at another U.S. Embassy or Consulate. However, if you already have paid the machine-readable visa fee, it cannot be transferred or refunded. If you wish to apply elsewhere while visa operations are suspended at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, you will be required to pay the fee again.
