Expedited Visa in Support of Haiti Relief Efforts

Expedited Visa in Support of Haiti Relief Efforts

AIT will provide expedited visa processing for members of charitable and government organizations transiting the United States to Haiti for purposes of supporting relief efforts in the aftermath of the January 12th earthquake.   Organizations wishing to use this service, please call the Non-Immigrant Visa Information Unit at 2162-2400 between the hours of 09:00-12:00 and 13:00-15:00 or email a request to visaniv-ait@state.gov .  Please state that you are requesting expedited visa processing for the “Haiti Rescue Mission”, and you will be directed to our coordinator.  All applicants must be affiliated with an accredited charity or relief organization.

Visas issued to members of charitable organizations for this purpose will be free of charge and valid for only 2 years.   However, they can only be used for travel to the United States in conjunction with relief efforts in Haiti.   Travel to United States for other purposes, i.e. tourism, cannot be done on this visa.  Applicants may chose to pay the standard visa application fees if they wish to apply for standard 5-year validity tourist visas.

Please note, obtaining an expedited visa interview is no guarantee of visa issuance.

為協助海地救災AIT提供快速處理簽證的服務

美國在台協會將提供快速處理簽證的服務,給即將過境美國前往海地協助一月十二日地震災害救援工作的慈善及政府機構人員。希望使用這項服務的機構,請於上午9:00到12:00或下午1:00到3:00間撥電話到2162-2400非移民簽證科詢問處,或傳送電子郵件到visaniv-ait@state.gov。請表明您是為了”海地搜救任務”而希望使用快速處理簽證的服務,我們會將您的來電或來信直接轉給我們的專責人員。所有要求這項服務的簽證申請人都必須是來自某個慈善或搜救機構。

針對這項任務核發給慈善機構成員的簽證將是免費的,但最多只有兩年效期。並且,這些簽證只能讓旅客赴美從事與海地救災有關的工作。若要赴美從事其他目的,例如觀光,則不能使用這些簽證。若申請人希望取得一般的五年效期觀光簽證,也可以選擇繳付原本規定的簽證申請費用。

請注意,獲准使用快速處理簽證面談的服務並不保證簽證也能獲准。
