Those seeking services which can only be provided by a US Embassy or US Consulate abroad (such as issuance of a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, US Passport, or additional visa pages for a previously issued US Passport) are well advised to contact an American Citizen Services (ACS) Section of the nearest US Post with appropriate Consular jurisdiction.

Those seeking visas such as the US tourist visa (B-2 visa), the US student visa (F-1 visa), the US exchange visitor visa (J-1 visa), or the US business visa (B-1 visa) are likely to see their visa application processed at a Non-Immigrant Visa Unit Abroad. It should be noted that the aforementioned visa applications are scrutinized pursuant to the language of section 214(b) of the United States Immigration and Nationality Act.

Those seeking visas for foreign spouses 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. It should be mentioned that for processing purposes the US fiance visa (also referred to as the K-1 visa) is treated in much the same manner as the immigrant visa categories noted above.

Those seeking an EB-5 visa for a prospective immigrant investor or an L-1 visa as an intra-company transferee are likely to only see their visa application processed pursuant to an approved immigration petition from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).
