Welcome to the Consular Section at the U.S. Embassy in Kinshasa, D.R. Congo!

All Congolese citizens wishing to enter the U. S. must first obtain a visa. This visa can be a non-immigrant visa for a temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence.

Nationals of certain countries are not required to have visas if they are traveling to the U.S. for tourism and a visit of 90 days or less.  For more information about the Visa Waiver Program click Visa Waiver Program (VWP).

Do not wait until the last minute! Inform yourself on visa application requirements and apply for your visa at least several weeks in advance of your planned travel dates. Everyone applying for a visa, including applicants renewing a visa, are required to appear in person at the U.S. Embassy.
