As of March 20, the United States Embassy in Bahrain is suspending routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa appointments. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time. The MRV fee is valid and may be used for a visa appointment in the country where it was purchased within one year of the date of payment. If you have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, please follow the guidance provided on our website https://ustraveldocs.com/bh/index.html to request an emergency appointment, or contact our call center at 1619 8885. If your passport is currently at the U.S. Embassy, please pick it up between 1:00 and 1:30 Sunday through Thursday.
