Beginning March 18, 2011, AIT will temporarily close for routine visa services in order to provide support in assisting American citizens evacuating from Japan due to the recent earthquake. This closure will remain effective until further notice on AIT’s website. AIT will continue to provide American Citizen Services.

We encourage individuals who had non-immigrant visa interview appointments scheduled on or after March 18, 2011 to check AIT’s website for updates on when we can resume routine services. These applicants may reschedule their appointments by visiting the Application Processing Center’s web site at http://www.visaagent.com.tw.

For emergency visa cases, please review AIT’s website at https://www.ait.org.tw for information about what constitutes an emergency and follow the instructions on our website to submit an email request.
