Regular Time and Day for Opening Visa Appointments

Starting the week of December 12, the U.S. Embassy Consular section will regularly open Nonimmigrant visa appointments, online, on Wednesdays, at 3:00 PM.

Visa interview appointments have been fully scheduled through December 31, 2022. On December 12, 2022, the Consular section will start adding appointments to the week of January 9, 2023. Thereafter, and until further notice, appointments will be added for one week at a time.

The U.S. Embassy Consular section is making this change to make it easier for the Surinamese public to schedule visa interview appointments. While the number of available appointments may change from week to week, new appointments will be added at the same time every week – Wednesdays at 3:00 PM.

You may be eligible to apply for a U.S. visa without the need for an interview based on your age, or if you are renewing a prior U.S. visa that expired less than 48 months ago. Please see this webpage for more information: Interview Waiver (IW) – U.S. Embassy in Suriname (
