The U.S. government requires residents of many countries to obtain a temporary visa before entering the United States. The visa application process may have increased the length of time required to receive your visa, so it is very important to apply for your visa at least 90 days prior to your departure. The information below provides important links and details that should make the process easier for you. Please contact WFX if you need assistance!
Once you have registered for WFX, Visa Letters may now be requested as part of your registration process. Upon completion of your registration, you will be asked if you require a Visa Letter. Once you submit the required information, it will be available on your Dashboard and may be printed immediately. If you are unable to obtain a visa, we will issue a full refund without charging the cancellation fee.
If you have questions about visas and other travel restrictions, check with your local U.S. consulate or visit the U.S. Embassy and Consulate home page.
A U.S. visa allows a foreign citizen to travel to a United States port of entry and request admission into the U.S. from a U.S. Immigration Inspector. Since September 11, visa applications have been subject to a greater degree of scrutiny than in the past. The timeframes for visa processing today are difficult to predict with accuracy for any individual applicant and could vary significantly by country. Advance planning on the part of travelers is essential to receive a visa in time for proposed travel dates to the United States.
Only requests submitted via the online registration system will be processed. Obtaining a Visa Letter from WFX will not guarantee that you will be approved for a visa. The letter is merely supplementary information that explains a visa applicant's intended purpose to travel. U.S. Embassy officers look at the totality of an applicant’s personal situation in determining visa eligibility.
All Visa Letters must be requested through the registration system no later than September 15, 2018.
