Business Visa Appointment Program

The American Business Council is pleased to announce the launch of the Business Visa Appointment Program in collaboration with the U.S. Mission to the United Arab Emirates.     The program is designed with the business member in mind, giving you support and making the visa process more accessible to our corporate members.  With trade at an all time high, ABC recognizes travel to the United States may increase your opportunities to maximize your business objectives.

Through the ABC, via the Business Visa Appointment Program the U.S. Mission may grant expeditious non-immigrant visa application appointments to employees of ABC business members who have an urgent need to travel for a business purpose.   As only Consular officers can determine visa eligibility under the law, participation in the Business Visa Appointment Program in no way guarantees the issuance of a non-immigrant visa.    ABC  encourages applicants to apply well in advance of their intended date of travel to allow for adequate processing time of any approved visa applications.   It is important to note that ABC is facilitating appointments only and has no impact on the Consular decision regarding visa issuance.  

ABC is pleased to offer this program from 10 am to 12 pm daily by appointment, Sunday – Thursday.   Appointments can be scheduled by contacting
