Welcome to the Visa Section!

The Visa Section of the United States Embassy in Ouagadougou processes applications for both nonimmigrant and immigrant visas to the U.S.  Citizens of Burkina Faso wishing to travel to the United States will need to have a valid visa.  The type of visa required will depend upon the reason for travel.  Click on the links below or on the left side of the page to learn more about the Visa Section.

We have endeavored to provide as much information as possible here on our website about the processes and applicable U.S. laws.  If you cannot find the information you seek directly on our site, you will also find links on the right hand side to other U.S. government sites that can provide additional information on visas, immigration, and travel to the United States of America.
