Visa applicants who are overseas or who have fallen out of status would generally need to apply for their visas with the U.S. embassies abroad. Most employment-based visa processes will need to go through the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) for approval before the visa applicant may apply directly with a U.S. embassy. Embassies vary in terms of how they process visa applications, and it is important for an applicant to review any available information about the visa process specific to a particular embassy prior to applying and attending his/her visa interview.
