U.S. CONSULATES IN CANADA


Ordinarily, Canadian citizens typically do not require a visa to enter the United States directly from Canada. When a visa is required it is often issued by a U.S. Consulate. Find out if you need a visa to enter the U.S..

There are seven United States consulates in Canada which process visa and green card applications. The services provided by U.S. consulates differ by location and may change over time and not all consulates process the same visas or green cards. The following sections provide the physical address for each consulate and also a link to an informational page. Please take the time to also visit the official websites for each respective consulate for the most current and up to date information.
