Nonimmigrant Visas: Crewmember Visa

Warning: Embassy Windhoek does not charge any fees for completing online forms and appointments!

While completing the DS-160 form, other commercial websites may offer assistance by asking for payment, but this is not necessary or required in order to apply for your U.S. visa in Windhoek.

Applicants only pay a onetime US$ 160 application fee in person, in cash, at the Embassy on the day of their interview and not on-line through the internet. Another Company, Website or Individual cannot guarantee the issuance of a U.S. Visa. Any such claims are fraudulent.

Crewmember (D) visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons working on board sea vessels or international airlines in the United States, providing services required for normal operation and intending to depart the United States on the same vessel or any other vessel within 29 days. If you travel to the United States to join the vessel you will work on, in addition to a crewmember (D) visa, you also need a transit (C-1) visa or a combination C-1/D visa.
