Yemen Response--Filing, expediting, and transferring Immigrant Visa petitions:  If you are a U.S. citizen who has filed or wants to file petitions for immediate family members (spouse, children, parents), Embassy Djibouti may be able to process your case.  Find answers to frequently asked questions about Immigrant Visa petitions here.

Note – We accept immigrant visa cases for applicants residing full-time in our consular district – the Republic of Djibouti. We will not accept cases in which the beneficiary cannot show proof of Djiboutian residency.

An immigrant visa is required of anyone who wishes to enter the United States to reside there permanently, whether or not that person plans to seek employment in the U.S.  For more information  about visas including diversity lottery programs please visit the Department of  State's web site at
