US Embassy Visa Interview Change

The US Embassy in London has agreed to release timeslots for visa interviews up to 11.30am, following discussions between the Embassy and the Music Industry Visa Taskforce.

Further to a meeting that took place in November between the Music Industry Visa Task Force and Officials from the US Embassy, the MU and British Underground are pleased to report that the US Embassy in London has agreed to release timeslots for visa interviews up to 11.30am, to help avoid the need for overnight stays in London to attend the early 8.00am interviews.

The Embassy has informed the Union that, “From Monday, December 12, we will make available five appointments per day at 11:30 a.m. for those applicants who have to travel a distance to London, so that they will not have to spend the previous night in the capital to make the early-morning slots. 

“Please do be aware, however, that those who take the later appointment may have to wait a bit longer for their interview, as they will be behind the bulk of the applicants who have earlier appointments.  We try to get through the interviews as quickly as possible – and most people do not have to wait longer than 90 minutes.  It’s just that applicants who take the first slots in the morning generally don’t have to wait longer than 30-45 minutes for their interviews.”
