Ich habe gerade nochmals die Auto-Reply gelesen. Vermutlich hast Du schon wieder eine neue Version. Bei mir steht Dein Absatz mit den alten NIE´s nicht drinnen und darauf bezog sich mein posting. Hier ist der Wortlaut!
Stand 02.07.2021 - Als ich die neue NIE beantragt habe!
Dann einfach durchscrollen. Dann kam der Bescheid, auch da steht nix von den alten NIE´s!
Thank you for contacting the Consular Section at the U.S. Consulate Frankfurt. This email address is used exclusively for questions about nonimmigrant and immigrant visas. If the answer to your inquiry is addressed below, you should not expect another response.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Consulate in Frankfurt remains unable to resume routine visa operations. We are currently offering as many appointments as resources and safety allow, and with our continued priority of providing services to U.S. citizens, the number and type of visa appointments remains limited.
Routine visa services will resume as soon as possible; however, we are currently unable to provide a specific date. Please monitor travel.state.gov and the U.S. Embassy website for the most up-to-date information on the current situation as well as any updates on the travel restrictions. In addition, you may contact our visa service provider for all information about appointment availability and on how to re-schedule your appointment.
General COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information
If you have questions on visa issues related to COVID-19, please visit our website at Frequently Asked COVID-19 Questions for VISAS - U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Germany
I am fully vaccinated, can I travel to the U.S.?
As of January 26, the CDC requires all travelers arriving in the U.S. aged two and older to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than three days prior to travel or proof of recovery from COVID-19. All travelers – U.S. citizen and foreigners – are subject to this testing requirement and the traveler’s vaccination status is irrespective of this requirement. Those who have been in the Schengen zone in the last 14 days should also follow the CDC’s guidelines for returning travelers.
Can I travel on ESTA?
Travelers with a valid ESTA may travel to the United States if they fall under one of the excepted categories (See Sec. 2. (a)). If you do not fall within these categories, you may qualify for a National Interest Exception. Please see below for information how on to apply for a National Interest Exception if you feel you qualify.
Can I travel on my current visa?
If you hold a current F1 or M1 visa and a valid I-20 form, you can travel to the United States. Other visa holders need to qualify for a National Interest Exception.
How can I apply for a National Interest Exception?
Only travelers seeking to provide vital support for critical infrastructure sectors or critical infrastructure-linked supply chain in the United States may qualify for NIEs. Critical infrastructure sectors are defined as chemical, communications, dams, defense industrial base, emergency services, energy, financial services, food and agriculture, government facilities, healthcare and public health, information technology, nuclear reactors, transportation, and water systems. Non-immigrant visa applicants who believe they qualify for a National Interest Exception (NIE) should sent the following to FrankfurtVisaInquiries@state.gov
- Copy of the passport bio page
- Copy of the visa/ESTA travel authorization
- If not a German citizen, copy of the German residence permit (Aufenthaltserlaubnis) or certificate from the registration office (Meldebescheinigung)
- All requests for economic- or business-related NIEs must include a support letter identifying the critical infrastructure sector into which the company falls and the vital support that the employees for whom you are seeking an NIE provides, along with documentation of the employee’s qualifications for the role you seek to have the employee perform, if applicable.
Due to the increased volume of NIE requests, incomplete requests will not be processed.
Please name each PDF file you attach with the document it contains (e.g., XXX B1 visa). At this time, vaccination status does not qualify a traveler for a NIE.
If you do not plan to travel to the United States in the next 30 days or if you are not in Germany, please wait until these conditions are met. A NIE is only valid for 30 days.
As we are currently experiencing a large volume of NIE requests, the processing time has significantly increased.
You are inquiring about your National Interest Exception?
If it has been more than 30 business days from the time we received your completed request, you may send an email with NIE REQUEST SUBMITTED MORE THAN 30 BUSINESS DAYS AGO in the subject line. We will not respond to any status inquiries unless the completed request was submitted 30 days ago.
How can I make a visa appointment?
Appointments can be made by visiting: https://www.ustraveldocs.com/de/ Written or telephonic requests to the Consulate for appointments will neither be honored nor acknowledged. CGI/Stanley schedules all appointments and answers all inquiries regarding the non-immigrant visa application process, processing times and passport delivery options.
Problems with scheduling an appointment?

I am a foreign spouse/child/fiancé(e) of a U.S. Citizen. Can I travel to the United States?
Please visit our website at https://de.usembassy.gov/covid19-faqs-for-visas/ for detailed information.
What if I travel to a third country before entering the U.S.?
If you are planning to depart the Schengen area for a 14-day period to travel directly to the U.S. from a country not affected by the Presidential Proclamation, please contact the U.S. Embassy of that third country. We cannot advise you on alternate travel plans.
Where do I find information on immigrating to the U.S.?
To apply for an immigrant visa, a foreign citizen seeking to immigrate generally must be sponsored by a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident immediate relative(s), or prospective U.S. employer, and have an approved petition before applying for an immigrant visa. More information can be found here Apply for a U.S. Visa | Immigrant Visa Information - Germany (English)
I am a member of the U.S. military and require service?
You may also visit our website at Military Families - U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Germany.
I am a legal permanent resident of the U.S. and have questions about my status?
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) is responsible for the administration of immigration and naturalization functions and establishing immigration service policies and priorities. Questions regarding permanent resident cards (“green cards”) and status must be directed to USCIS. The USCIS website provides useful information for Permanent and Conditional Residents.
