The immigrant visa process requires multiple steps to complete the application. The details of the process are available at travel.state.gov. The steps below begin with the assumption that you have filed a petition with the USCIS.
Disclaimer: This website and associated call center services does not provide status or information concerning the processing at the USCIS, NVC, KCC, or the U.S. Consular Section.
Check the status of a filed immigrant petition at the USCIS website.
If you received notification that your Immigrant petition is approved by USCIS and was forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC) or KCC for further processing, please visit NVC to learn about the next steps for processing at the NVC.
The NVC, KCC, or U.S. Consular Section will provide notification and instructions of further actions and interview date(s).

Attend the appointment indicated in the letter received by NVC, KCC, or the Consular Section. Please remember to bring all required documents to your appointment.
After attending the U.S. Consular Section appointment, you may track the status of your visa application at https://ceac.state.gov/CEAC.
The Consular Section at U.S. Embassy Bogota, considering international norms of immunity, will not respond to derechos de petición and tutelas. If you have any consular-related inquiries, we recommend that you send them to us via our contact form, rather than in a petition and/or tutela format to which we cannot respond. We note that the granting of visas is a matter of State sovereignty.
Please contact us through our contact form.
Due to security procedures and space limitations, U.S. consular sections do not permit interested parties such as friends, relatives, attorneys, or business contacts to attend the visa interview with the applicant. Only the applicant (and a guardian, if the applicant is unable to care for him- or herself) may attend a visa interview.
All U.S. Embassy visitors and their personal belongings must pass through security screening before entering the building. For reasons of safety and security, the following items are strictly forbidden inside the embassy. We ask all our visitors to leave these items at home. None of these devices can be stored at the Embassy. We do not recommend any services outside the embassy for storing your items.
This list is not all-inclusive, and security officials reserve the right to deny entry of items determined to be unsafe or a threat to security.
If you need reasonable accommodation for your appointment, we encourage you to request your accommodation immediately once you schedule your appointment. We make every effort to provide accommodations to persons with disabilities and medical conditions. Reasonable accommodations vary, depending on the situation and the person’s needs.
Examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to:
If you are unable to provide fingerprints because of a medical condition, including birth defects, physical deformities, skin conditions, you may qualify for a fingerprint waiver for certain fingers.
The waiting room of the Consular Section and its restroom is wheelchair-accessible.
