Visas Notice
July 12, 2022

Nonimmigrant visa appointments are available here: https://mw.usembassy.gov/visas/important-visa-information/

If you have had a U.S. visa of any type that expired within the past 48 months, please email a photograph of your visa to LilongweConsular@state.gov  using “Interview Waiver Request” as the subject of your message to see if you qualify for the interview waiver program.

We continue to accept requests for emergency appointments for humanitarian/emergency cases. Due to high global demand for visa appointments, we will review requests for expedited appointments for Malawian citizens and residents applying for student, exchange or employment-based visas on a case-by-case basis, prioritizing applicants with program start dates within two weeks of the request and who have not recently been refused a visa. If the consul determines your case meets our strict guidelines designed to protect our applicants and our staff, you will be given an appointment as quickly as the embassy can safely accommodate your interview.  Humanitarian/emergency cases may include an immediate relative’s death, grave illness, or life-threatening accident taking place in the United States.  Immediate relatives are defined as parents, children, or siblings of the applicant.

If you believe your case qualifies for an appointment under the guidelines above, please contact LilongweConsular@state.gov and use “Qualifying NIV Appointment Request” as the subject of your message.
