The US Embassy Berlin can be found in several locations. For consular services such as US visas and US passports, applicants must go to Berlin-Dahlem (Clayallee). The office is located in the U.S. Embassy Berlin building on Pariser Platz.

Opening hours

The US Embassy Berlin is normally open to applicants Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., but is closed on all German and American holidays closed. However, admission is granted only by prior appointment.


Almost all applicants for nonimmigrant visas (e.g. B-1 / B-2 visas) between the ages of 14 and 79 must apply for their visa in person at one of the responsible consulates. Applicants who wish to appear at the US consulate in Berlin must make an appointment in advance. The arrangement of a visa interview appointment is usually made online or by telephone through the visa service provider CGI.

If the visa processing is done through our US Visa Service, our visa consultants will of course take care of all formalities and the timely arrangement of your visa interview.

Waiting times

How quickly an interview appointment is available at the US Embassy Berlin depends on many factors - for example, seasonal peak travel times, holidays, or the administrative staffing of the US consulates or consular sections.

Timely application is very important, as bottlenecks or unforeseen shortfalls can sometimes occur. Therefore, it is advisable to plan a little earlier.
