Do You Need a U.S. Transit Visa?

If you wish to travel to another country with a brief layover in the United States, or you are a crewmember traveling to the United States as a passenger to join a ship or aircraft you will work on, you will need to apply for and obtain a U.S. transit visa. 

All flights that stop in an USA airport require passengers to go through U.S. immigration and customs. It does not matter how short the stop in the USA is, you need the same required visa paperwork as if you were staying in the U.S. for a visit. This also applies to passengers traveling from a foreign port on a cruise ship or a vessel which is headed to another country, and which during its course makes port in the U.S. with no intention of landing in the United States.

Unless canceled or revoked, a visa is valid until its expiration date. Applicants for transit visas must be able to prove that they are not coming to the country to immigrate, but rather for the purposes included under the visa.

Are You Eligible for a U.S. Transit Visa?

Even though the Transit Visa requirements are the same for all applications, the U.S. Department of State staff and the Consular officer might have additional requirements. We are here to carefully review your case and make sure you meet all the conditions.

As an applicant, you must:

  • Have a valid passport. The validity date must be at least 6 months beyond your intended period of stay (unless exempted).
  • Intend to pass in transit through the U.S.
  • Have a common carrier ticket or other evidence of transportation arrangements to your destination.
  • Have permission to enter another country upon departure from the United States.
  • Have sufficient funds to cover your travel, accommodation, and other expenses while in the United States.
  • Have a copy of your current employment contract, if available.

How to Get a U.S. Transit Visa?

To apply for a Transit Visa you will be required to fill out your online non-immigrant visa application, gather all necessary documentation, schedule and attend an interview with a Consular officer.
File your application with the U.S. Department of State

In this initial step, you will need to gather all necessary documents and supporting evidence, fill in the online non-immigration visa application form, and file it with the U. S. Department of State. We are here to help you from the very beginning and streamline the process.

Schedule your Embassy interview appointment

Once you submit your online non-immigration visa application, you will receive the confirmation number for your application. Use the confirmation number and the MRV fee receipt to schedule your Embassy Interview. We offer step-by-step assistance throughout the process.

Attend the Embassy interview

During the interview, you will answer a series of questions regarding your background and upcoming travels, to prove that your visa case is genuine. You might also be required to present additional information and proof. You will usually get a determination whether or not your visa is approved at the end of the interview. We’re here to support you along the way, streamline the entire process, and boost your visa approval chances.
