Akmenų 6
Vilnius, LT-03106

Nonimmigrant visa interviews are conducted by appointments only on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday 8:00 A.M. – 11:30 A.M., except Lithuanian and U.S. public holidays.

A new interview waiver program opened on November 5, 2018, for Lithuanians who meet the requirements listed below. U.S. Embassy Vilnius has developed a new process for these applicants to receive a visa without an interview. There will be no need to come to the Embassy to apply for your visa in person. Simply drop off the passport and the needed materials at the TNT office in Vilnius (there is no fee charged for this service). Please read the general requirements and carefully follow the instructions. Please note that this option applies only to Lithuanian citizens physically present in Lithuania.

Note: The list of applicants who can use this program will grow in the future.

Individuals who normally reside in Russia, but who are unable to apply for a U.S. visa in a timely manner may submit their application in U.S. Embassy Vilnius. Applicants are not required to be a resident of Lithuania to apply for a visa at U.S. Embassy Vilnius, but must be physically present in Lithuania at the time of visa application and visa interview, as we cannot accept mail-in applications from individuals while they are outside of Lithuania. All applicants should include a local address in Lithuania – hotel, relative, office – when scheduling an appointment for a visa interview.
