Nonimmigrant Visas

Notice Regarding Travel Restrictions:
In response to the international COVID-19 crisis, all routine visa services have been suspended.

President Trump has signed proclamations limiting entry into the United States of certain aliens who were physically present in the People’s Republic of China, Iran, Brazil, and parts of Europe (the Schengen Zone, the UK, and Ireland) within the 14 days preceding entry or attempted entry into the United States. U.S. citizens are not subject to the proclamations. All three proclamations provide exceptions to the restrictions for lawful permanent residents of the United States. Some exceptions include, but are not limited to: certain family members of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents including: spouses, children (under the age of 21), parents (provided that his/her U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident child is unmarried and under the age of 21), and siblings (provided that both the sibling and the U.S. resident or lawful permanent resident are unmarried and under the age of 21). For more information and the full text of these proclamations, please visit:

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Chisinau is responsible for providing visa services to those seeking to enter the United States for a temporary period and for those wishing to take up indefinite or permanent residence in the United States.
