Move Visa Appointment to a Later Date

You can typically reschedule an appointment up to three total times. To move your appointment to later date a second time, first cancel your current appointment and then book a new appointment.

Move Appointment to an Earlier Date

To move your appointment to an earlier date, cancel your current appointment and then book a new appointment. You can typically only do this three total times, so be wise in your appointment rescheduling.

Cancel an Appointment

  • You can cancel your visa interview appointment up to two business days before your appointment unless your interview appointment is scheduled at the US Consulate in Mumbai. If your appointment is at the US Consulate in Mumbai, you can cancel your appointment up to four business days before the appointment.
  • In order to cancel the appointment, log into your profile on the ustraveldocs.com website and click on the “Cancel Appointment” link in the menu. Once you confirm, the appointment will be cancelled and you can make another appointment.
  • There is no fee for cancelling an appointment.
  • However, you will not get a refund if you cancel your appointment and do not attend a rescheduled appointment. Your fees are good for one year from payment, so you must make an interview appointment within a year from when you pay your fees.
  • If you are unable to attend your H1B visa interview, see our visa interview guide for what to do next.
