Emergency Appointments

If there are no appointment times available prior to your planned travel date, you can request an Expedited or Emergency Appointment. First, you should schedule a regular appointment for the earliest available date. After you have an appointment scheduled, send an email to ConsulateNiamey@state.gov explaining your purpose and dates of travel and the reason you need an expedited or emergency appointment.

We cannot guarantee that you will be given an expedited or emergency appointment. The following situations may qualify you for an Expedited or Emergency Appointment:

  • A medical emergency;
  • Death of an immediate family member;
  • Urgent business travel;
  • Student or exchange visitor travel (F, M and J visas)
