A-2, NATO1-6 Military personnel of a foreign country stationed in the U.S.
Applications for revalidating A-2 and NATO 1-6 visas for foreign military personnel stationed in the United States are accepted by the Diplomatic Liaison/Visa Revalidation Division of the Visa Office. The principal applicant must present either military orders or a letter from the U.S. military command outlining their mission in the U.S. if they do not already have a Personal Identification Number (PID) given to them by the Department of State’s Office of Protocol. Foreign military commands must be issued in English or include a translation into English. The letter must be on the military command’s letterhead, be signed by a representative authorized to sign such letters, include the names of the principal applicant and any dependents, and specify when the principal applicant’s tour of duty will expire. A fresh visa can also be requested at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad that handles nonimmigrant visa requests.
Visas that are not renewable in the United States
For citizens of Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, or Syria—the seven nations currently listed as state sponsors of terrorism—the Visa Office does not renew their visas. These candidates must submit new visa applications at a foreign U.S. embassy or consulate. The Notice: Special Visa Processing Procedures Pursuant to Section 306 of the Enhanced Border Security and Visa Reform Act of 2002 contains more information.
