The US Embassy Port of Spain Visa Unit will no longer be able to provide free courier services for visa applicants.
The decision, which is effective immediately, applies to both immigrant visa (IV) and non-immigrant visa (NIV) processing, including cases where the interview has been waived.
The US Embassy advised that applicants will be required to use TTPost to submit their documents for both types of visas.
It said NIV cases that can be submitted as interview-waived applications should carefully follow detailed NIV document submission instructions outlined on the US Embassy’s website.
Immigrant visa applicants are encouraged to bring all necessary documents to their interview in order to avoid follow-up document submission requirements and consequent visa issuance delays.
In the event that a consular officer requires additional documents, IV applicants should carefully follow the detailed IV document submission instructions outlined on the US Embassy’s website.
