Those seeking services which can only be provided at an American Citizen Services Section of a US Embassy or US Consulate abroad (such as issuance of a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, US Passport, or additional visa pages in a previously issued US Passport) are well advised to attempt to make an appointment with the Post online (if possible) in order to streamline the processing of requests lodged with the Consulate.

Those seeking non-immigrant visas such as the B-2 visa for foreign tourists, the B-1 visa for foreign business travelers, the J-1 visa for exchange visitors, or the F-1 visa for foreign students are likely to see their applications processed at a non-immigrant visa unit abroad. It should be noted that such applications are scrutinized pursuant to the provisions of section 214(b) of the United States Immigration and Nationality Act.

Those seeking immigrant visas for foreign loved ones (such as the CR-1 visa or the IR-1 visa) are likely to see their visa application processed at an immigrant visa unit abroad following the approval of an underlying immigration petition at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). For processing purposes, the K-1 visa is treated in much the same way as the immigrant visa categories notwithstanding the fact that it is technically a non-immigrant US fiance visa.

Those seeking an L-1 visa or EB-5 visa for business travel purposes are likely to only see their visa application processed following a successful adjudication of an underlying immigrant visa petition at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).
