Not a British citizen, but want to apply for a U.S. visa in the UK?
You may apply for a visa at the Embassy in London or the Consulate General in Belfast if you are physically present in the United Kingdom. As with all nonimmigrants, you will be required to establish your eligibility for a visa under Section 214(b) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
This section of law stipulates that all visa applicants are presumed to be intending immigrants until they can establish otherwise. Applicants typically confirm that they are bona fide visitors by demonstrating sufficiently strong social, economic, and financial ties to their place of residence to compel them to depart the United States after a brief visit.Photo: ##http://www.flickr.com/photos/arthurcooke/4404685178/sizes/m/in/photostream/##aurthurcook on Flickr
Although we will accept visa applications from anyone physically present in the United Kingdom, if you are not a permanent resident of the U.K. you should be aware that the interviewing officers’ unfamiliarity with local conditions in your country may make it more difficult to demonstrate your qualifications for a visa.If you are a temporary resident, or are planning on traveling to the U.K. specifically to apply for a visa, you may wish to consider applying for a visa in your country of permanent residence where you will be best able to establish your qualifications for a visa.
Information about scheduling an appointment is available from the Embassy website: http://london.usembassy.gov/niv/apply.html.
