US Consulate Immigrant Visa Instructions: Western Hemisphere

Below is a list of US Consulates and Embassies across the Western Hemisphere (North America, Latin America, South America, and the Carribean) that provide Immigrant Visas. The Instruction links should be the most up-to-date version of the Immigrant Interview instructions since they are webpages and the US Government has moved away from PDF Versions being the only form of Instruction, which has a high tendency of being outdated. However, on every page, you are able to “PDF” the instructions to help with Interview Preparation.
