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.

Temporary employment visas are for persons who want to enter the United States for employment lasting a fixed period of time, and are not considered permanent or indefinite. Each of these visas requires the prospective employer to first file a petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). An approved petition is required to apply for a temporary employment visa.

See our Temporary Employment Visa Categories on usvisas.state.gov to determine which visa category might be appropriate for your purpose of travel to the United States.
