To request an expedited/emergency appointment, an applicant must first pay the MRV fee and schedule an appointment. Only after an appointment is scheduled can an applicant request an earlier appointment date from the Consular Section based on emergency circumstances.
Step 1: Schedule an Appointment
The applicant must have already scheduled a regular appointment at a U.S. Embassy in La Paz, Bolivia. This must be done even if the appointment scheduled does not fit the need of the applicant.
Step 2: Request an Expedited Appointment
If the scheduled appointment does not fit your emergency travel needs, you may request an expedited appointment by e-mailing ConsularLaPazNIV@state.gov and using "Evidence for the Special Appointment." in the subject line. Please attach documentary evidence for the reason of the emergency appointment request to the email.
Please note that in order to request an expedited appointment you MUST have had an appointment scheduled
The Consular Section considers the following situations examples of those eligible to apply for expedited appointments:
Step 3: Consular Determination to Expedite
The Consular Section will strive to respond to the request as expeditiously as possible, generally within two business days by scheduling a new appointment. If the applicant's request for an expedited appointment is accepted, the applicant will receive a new confirmation e-mail with a new date and time to appear at the Consular Section. If the request is not approved, the applicant should attend the original appointment.
Please be advised that the granting of an expedited appointment in no way guarantees visa issuance. U.S. law places the burden of qualifying for any visa solely on the applicant.
