Beginning 31 July, 2013, the U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, will implement a new procedure to simplify and streamline the visa application process for those traveling to the United States. There will be no visa appointments on this day. The new services will be available through the website http://usvisa-info.com/ or by calling a local phone number to schedule a Non-Immigrant visa application submission appointment. The new website will also provide payment instructions to complete the U.S. visa application fee.
If you have a scheduled non-immigrant visa appointment between August 1 and August 31, 2013 and have not paid the 160 USD visa application fee, you will be allowed to pay the fee here at the U.S. Embassy on the day of your appointment.
Photos should be stapled or glued to the non-immigrant visas application (DS-160). If the photogpraph is stapled, the staples should be placed as far away as possible from applicant's face.
