Business Visa Appointment Program (BVAP)

The AmCham Dubai is pleased to partner with the U.S. Consulate in Dubai to provide business members access to expedited business visa appointments via the Council’s Business Visa Appointment Program (BVAP).

The program is designed with the business member in mind. Both the AmCham Dubai and the U.S. Consulate in Dubai recognize that business-critical travel to the United States may sometimes come at short notice. We would like to reassure the business community that your interests will be represented and the Council is at your service to support as would be expected from a leading international affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Through the BVAP, the US Consulate will be requested to consider an expedited, non-immigrant visa appointment to employees of AmCham Dubai's business member companies who have an evident and urgent need for business travel to the United States. As only Consular officers can determine visa eligibility applicable under U.S. law, participation in the Business Visa Appointment Program may require separate supporting documentation and companies are in no way guaranteed an expedited appointment or the successful issuance of a non-immigrant visa. AmCham Dubai always strongly encourages applicants to apply for required visas well in advance of their intended date to allow for adequate processing time for applications.
