(SNO) – The US embassy in Bridgetown, Barbados, has said it cancelling all routine non-immigrant and immigrant visa appointments effective today, March 18, 2020.
The embassy said services will resume as soon as possible but was unable to provide a specific date of time.
“Please note that the MRV fee remains valid and may be used for a non-immigrant visa application in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment,” the embassy said in a statement.
However, the Renewal Interview Waiver (RIW) and Interview Waiver Program (IWP) remain operational.
