Visas

In general, citizens and legal residents of Seychelles apply in-person for nonimmigrant visas at the U.S. Embassy in Port Louis.  Regardless of nationality, individuals may also apply at any U.S. Embassy or Consulate elsewhere in the world.  At the U.S. Embassy in Port Louis, applications qualified for visa issuance are routinely ready for pick up within three business days.  For more information, see the Visas section of the Embassy website.  Individuals who have previously been issued nonimmigrant visas after the age of 14 may be eligible to renew their visas without an interview and without the need to travel to Port Louis.

U.S. Embassy Port Louis does not process immigrant visas.  Immigrant visas for legal residents of Mauritius, Seychelles, and Reunion (Fr) are handled by the U.S. Consulate General in Johannesburg, South Africa.
