Renewing Your Diplomatic Visa
If you are currently in the U.S. and need to renew your visa, you will need to collect a lot of documentation and complete a lot of paperwork. The main application form is known as the Form DS- 1648. You will need an embassy, organization, or mission seal on the confirmation page of this application. Travelers with A-3 visas cannot apply for renewal in the U.S.
