Firstly; Before going to your appointment, we recommend that you do not carry electronic devices and belongings such as large bags, cell phones, ipads, ipods, MP3 players, USB and other memory devices with you. None of these are accepted into consulates. Before you go inside, have all your forms and documents ready with you (your passport, DS-160 form confirmation page, address information printout of the PTT branch where your passport will be sent, your photo and other additional documents). These documents will be taken and checked by a consulate employee and you will be given a serial number. Then, with this serial number, you will be called first for fingerprints and then for your interview with the consular officer. All these processes can sometimes take longer than expected, so it would be appropriate to plan your time accordingly.


Your interview will be conducted by a consular officer in English or Turkish, depending on your request, or a consulate employee will assist you with interpreting during your interview. Therefore, it is not important that you do not know English. Consular officers usually look at the personal circumstances of the applicants, their travel plans, their financial situation and their ties to Turkey. When you are called to the interview desk, the reason for going to America, how long you will stay, your relatives or relatives in America, your profession, financial situation and your previous trips abroad, etc. related questions may be asked. Consular officers may not ask you for the documents or documents you brought during your interview, or they may not look at them at all, but considering that they may be requested, it is still useful to have these documents and documents with you.


After your meeting with the consular officer, your passport and the printout of the address information of the PTT branch to which your passport will be sent will remain at the consulate and your visa will be sent to the PTT branch you have previously determined within 5 working days. In some cases, additional documents or forms related to the applications may be requested or additional administrative procedures may be required. In such cases, you will need to send the required documents to the consulate later to obtain a visa or wait for additional administrative procedures. These additional administrative proceedings may take from 1 to 6 months, and therefore, after your application, you may have to wait a few months for these additional procedures, which cannot be expedited.
