Consular Information

As U.S. Embassy San Salvador’s conditions permit, and after meeting demand for services to U.S. citizens, we will prioritize immediate relative family members of U.S. citizens, including spouses and children of U.S. citizens, intercountry adoptions, fiancé(e)s of U.S. citizens, and certain special immigrant visa applications. The health and safety of our workforce and customers remain paramount.

Though we continue to face real and persistent challenges in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to decreasing the immigrant visa backlog by prioritizing certain visas and are marshalling all available resources until our task is accomplished. This may limit our ability to accommodate some non-immigrant visa appointments.  If you have an urgent need to travel, please call 2113-3122.  You can also request an expedited appointment online:
