The Embassy is not currently processing routine non-immigrant visitor visas (e.g., most B class visas). However, we continue to provide all immigrant visa services and we can accommodate non-immigrant visa services for mission-critical and emergency cases, including for student and exchange visitor visas (F, M, or J class visas); employment-based visas (e.g., H and L class visas); diplomatic or official visas; and cases (including B class visas) that relate to repatriations, adoptions, family reunification, emergency and medical travel, or other situations of a sufficiently compelling nature. If you believe your case meets one of these criteria, please write to ConsularPortMoresby@state.gov.
Temporary employment visas are for persons who want to enter the United States for employment lasting a fixed period of time, and are not considered permanent or indefinite. Each of these visas requires the prospective employer to first file a petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). An approved petition is required to apply for a temporary employment visa.
If you have any questions regarding any part of the U.S. visa process, please contact the Consular section at ConsularPortMoresby@state.gov.
