Reminder: Report Visa Interviews and Approvals to the HIO
If you are an incoming student or scholar who is applying for aÂ visaÂ at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate, please make sure to update any visa appointment booking, visa appointment cancellations, and visa approvals with theÂ HIOÂ using ourÂ online reporting form. You may submit this form multiple times to update previously-reported information.Â We will use your reporting anonymously to help your fellow students at the University as they navigate the visa application process.
As a reminder, U.S. Embassies and Consulates worldwide are working through backlogs from the pandemic, and may be operating at reduced capacity, making obtaining an appointment more difficult. You may view the current operating status of a given U.S. Embassy or Consulate on theÂ U.S. State Department website.
Â You may find more detailed instructions for the visa application process this year, including updates on 2022 Embassy protocols and instructions on requesting an emergency visa appointment, in theÂ Student visa application,Â Scholar visa application, andÂ Student Intern visa applicationÂ pages of the HIO website.
