Travel for Non-Citizens and Non-Residents of Iraq

If you are a non-citizen or non-resident of Iraq and wish to schedule a non immigrant visa appointment, please send an email to ErbilNIV@state.gov with the subject ‘Non-citizen/Non-Resident Travel’.  In the email, you must include the following:

  • An explanation of your purpose of travel to the United States

Consular services will consider your request on a space-available-basis.  Please note that if you are a non-citizen/non-resident of Iraq, and you schedule an appointment using our online scheduling program, your appointment will be cancelled, and you will be notified via email.

Visa applicants can also apply at any consulate or embassy which is accepting appointments.  There is no requirement to apply in Erbil.  Please see https://travel.state.gov to find information on scheduling appointments in other locations.
