Steps to obtaining a U.S visa from Qatar

Step One

Make certain as to what type of visa you require, since the US has a visa waiver program, it would be best to confirm if your country of origin falls under this list. You may check here.

If your country of origin is in this list, then you do not need a U.S visa to enter the country if the purpose of the visit falls under either business or leisure.

Step Two

Complete the DS-160 application form and submit it along with a recent photograph of yourself (has to have been taken within the past 6 months)

Step Three

After completing the form, collect the number it generates as this is used to book your appointment, you will then be directed to a new page to create an account to pay for the visa fee. The visa fee is generally $160 for a tourist visa, but may increase for any additional staying options.

Step Four

After you have made your payment, you will receive a receipt as proof of payment.

Step Five

Using the same account details, log into your account and schedule your appointment. You will need the following details for this step:

  • Your passport number
  • The number given after you submitted the form DS-160
  • The transaction number from your payment receipt
  • Personal details
  • Address for the delivery of documents
  • Confirmation of visa payment
  • Date and time for an appointment.

Step Six

For this step, you will need to visit the U.S Embassy in Qatar on the date and time of your scheduled appointment. You will then have to attend a visa interview.

Step Seven

Once your visa is approved, you will be asked to collect it from the U.S Embassy building.
