Welcome Visa Applicants!
Georgian citizens, like citizens of many countries, require a visa to enter the United States.
Nonimmigrant Visas are for people with permanent residence outside the U.S. but who wish to go to the U.S. on a temporary basis - for tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work, or study.
U.S. law requires that people who apply for nonimmigrant visas provide evidence that they don't intend to immigrate to the United States. It's up to consular officers at U.S. embassies and consulates to determine eligibility on an individual basis on the merits of each case.
Because each person's personal situation is different, people applying for the same visa may be asked different questions. Please note that documents are not required for most nonimmigrant visa cases in Tbilisi (students, exchange visitors and medical cases are required to submit supporting documents) and it is not our standard practice to review them. Consular officers may request additional information or documentation depending on their assessment of each person's situation. Our website contains all the necessary information about types of nonimmigrant visas and the application process.
Several categories of people are eligible to receive an Immigrant Visa. Certain applicants can apply on their own behalf. All others must have a relative or potential employer apply for them. Again, additional information regarding visa types and the application process is available throughout this website.

NOTICE: Please be advised that if you arrive late for your scheduled visa appointment interview, you will not be guaranteed an interview that day. If you arrive more than one hour late you will be required to reschedule your appointment to the next available date via the regular online appointment system. Please arrive 15 minutes early for your appointment. For applicants who arrive on time, the average time spent at the Embassy for a routine nonimmigrant visa interview is between 2 to 3 hours, but in some cases the wait is shorter or longer than the average times. Arriving late will increase your wait time, as will coming unprepared for the interview. Please review our website carefully to ensure you arrive prepared.
