The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Liberia wishes to inform its citizens that it has received official notification from the Government of the United States of America, through its Embassy near Monrovia, on a temporary suspension of its Non-Immigrant Visa (NIV) operations and limiting its Immigrant Visa services.


According to a Foreign Ministry Release, the Government has been assured that Liberian citizens who previously made Non-Immigrant Visa (NIV) appointments will be rescheduled through the embassy’s online appointment system as soon as possible.


This action is temporary and does not reflect a change in U.S visa policy in Liberia.


The Government of Liberia hastens to assure its citizens and the general public that its relations with the Government and people of the United States of America remains mutual to the benefits of both countries.


In the meanwhile, the U.S Embassy has assured of their commitment to addressing genuine emergency applications through its expedited visa appointment platform.


The Government of Liberia regrets whatever inconvenience this temporary suspension may cause it citizens and calls on all to refrain from panicking, as this measure is only temporary.
