All visa interviews at the U.S. Consulate General in Calgary are handled on an appointment basis only. Individuals seeking general information about U.S. visas or needing to schedule a visa appointment may do so online at through the U.S. Visa Services website, or by calling (403) 800-1194 (calling from the Calgary area), or (703) 439-2319 (from elsewhere in Canada or in the United States). There are no service fees or toll charges for using the online or telephone services beyond standard applicable data and phone connection fees. An online visa application must be completed and required visa application fees must be paid before an appointment can be scheduled. For more information on the nonimmigrant visa appointment system, please consult the relevant section of this website.
All visitors must follow certain security procedures when visiting the U.S. Embassy or its Consulates. Any visitor who declines to be screened by U.S. Consulate security personnel will be prohibited from entering the Consulate.
The following persons may accompany a visa applicant during Consular-related visits:
- Interpreter: Applicants may bring one interpreter if they do not speak English well enough to participate in an interview.
Note: The working language of the U.S. government is English. The applicant is responsible for providing a translator for any language other than English, even if that language is an official language of Canada, i.e. French.
- Special Needs Visitors: Applicants may bring one person to help if they are elderly, disabled, or if the applicant is a minor child applying for a visa.
- Attorney: Attorneys will not be permitted to accompany clients into the waiting room or at their interviews.
Due to waiting room size, the large volume of applicants and the time required to screen consular clients, other accompanying persons cannot be admitted to the waiting room. Drivers, friends, and extra relatives must wait outside or return to meet the applicant after the interview has been completed - with the exception of applicants with children.
A list of attorneys in the Calgary consular district is available from the Consular Section (134KB PDF).
