U.S. Embassy Announces New Visa Appointment Service 2/27/2011
On March 1, 2011, the US Embassy in Accra will transition to a new nonimmigrant (visitor) visa appointment service. As of March 1, all nonimmigrant visa applicants must schedule appointments through the U.S. Visa Information Service at www.ustraveldocs.com or by calling 233-263011685.
The following steps will be necessary as of March 1, 2011 to apply for a U.S. nonimmigrant visa:
Step 1 Pay the visa application fee at any Ecobank branch.
Step 2 Complete the online nonimmigrant visa application form (CEAC/DS-160).
Step 3 Schedule a visa interview appointment at www.ustraveldocs.com or by calling or 233-263011685.
Three pieces of information will be required to schedule an appointment:
o passport number
o MRV fee payment receipt
o The ten (10) digit barcode number from your DS-160 confirmation page
Step 4 Visit the U.S. Embassy in Accra on the date and time of the visa interview. Applicants will need to bring a printed copy of the appointment letter, the DS-160 confirmation page, one recent visa photograph, current and all old passports, and the original visa fee payment receipt. Applications without all of these items will not be accepted.
Step 5 Applicants will collect issued visas in person at the U.S. Embassy in Accra.

For further information about the U.S. visa process, please visit www.ustraveldocs.com .

Applicants who have already scheduled visa appointments will not be impacted by this change. Those who have already scheduled an appointment through the current online system should bring their Standard Chartered receipt and proceed via the current process.
Applicants who have paid their MRV fee prior to March 1, 2011, but have not scheduled an appointment, will have a grace period from March 1, 2011 until April 30, 2011 to use their MRV fee for appointment scheduling.
Anyone with an MRV receipt obtained prior to March 1 will have to pay the MRV fee again if they have not scheduled an appointment before April 30, 2011.
