Visa Waiver Program

Portuguese citizens wishing to travel to the United States for tourism or business for stays of 90 days or less without requesting a visa, may apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization, ESTA under the Visa Waiver Program.

However, if you wish/need to apply for a visa, please note that we are accepting appointment requests for most visa categories (including B1/B2s) and we are currently accepting both Portuguese passport holders and permanent residents of Portugal, as well as non-resident third country nationals.

Appointments are limited.  To book an appointment please visit

If you are unable to pay/book an appointment for your visa category, it means that we have no more available appointments at this time.

Appointments are opened six months in advance, but more slots are added regularly depending on availability. Please continue to check the website for available interview dates.

For general questions, including how to book an appointment, class of visa required or document delivery, please contact
