The United States is taking historic steps to chart a new course in our relations with Cuba and to further engage and empower the Cuban people.
The President’s Immigration Accountability Executive Actions will help secure the border, hold nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants accountable, and ensure that everyone plays by the same rules.
Millions of undocumented immigrants who live in the shadows but want to play by the rules and pay taxes have no way to correct their immigration status under the law.
Notice from the Consular Section
The U.S. Consulate in Guayaquil is not reducing or closing consular services, despite persistent rumors to the contrary – in fact, our consular services continue to expand to meet growing demand. Due to the high demand for tourist/business visas, appointment wait times at the U.S. Consulate in Guayaquil have consistently been one month or longer currently exceed 50 days. We are actively taking steps to meet this increased demand, including increasing the number of interviewing officers. However, for the time being, we remind customers that all applicants, regardless of where they live, who are applying for tourist/business visas may also apply at the U.S. Embassy in Quito, where current wait times for tourist/business visas at the U.S. Embassy in Quito are under one week.
Nonimmigrant visa applicants can find appointment wait times for Quito and Guayaquil here. U.S. citizens must schedule appointments for passport services, Consular Reports of Birth Abroad, and notarial services through the Embassy’s and Consulate’s respective webpages.
