AILA Doc No. 07022261 | Dated February 22, 2007
Ambassador Hull has announced the immediate resumption of non-immigrant visa services at the American Embassy in Freetown. Immigrant Visas are still processed in Dakar and Diversity Visas (DV) are still processed in Abidjan. The Ambassador noted that nonimmigrant visa application procedures have changed since 1997 when the Embassy last processed visas, including the requirement that applications be submitted on the internet in accordance with the U.S. Government’s worldwide requirements. Other changes include making visa interview appointments via the internet instead of queuing at the Embassy, and paying the visa application fee at the Sierra Leone Commercial Bank in Freetown in advance of the appointment.
